Tennessee Congressional Member Files Anthem Resolution

U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-7) files a congressional resolution reminding Americans of the U.S. Flag Code, contained at 36 U.S.C. §301.  This statute provides guidance regarding conduct during the national anthem. The statute is not punitive and, as such, its provisions are simply recommendations. Failure to comply is not a civil or criminal offense. Knoxnews.com.
