After approval of the Journal, the Speaker recognizes a designated Member to lead the House in the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag. The Member designated alternates between the majority and minority party on a daily basis. The Member is usually informed in advance if he or she is the designated Member.

I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the

United States of America and to the

Republic for which it stands, one nation

Under God, indivisible, with Liberty and

Justice for all.
