House bill HB19 in Alabama is passed as Act 98-381. It requires that every public school classroom in the state begin each day with a

"brief period of quiet reflection for not more than 60 seconds with the participation of each pupil in the classroom."

This same act also repeals Section 16-1-20.1, Code of Alabama 1975, relating to a period of silence for meditation in the public schools.
