HARRISBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA/AP) - The state house of representatives will resume faith-based prayer.

The announcement from Speaker Mike Turzai comes more than a month after a federal appeals court ruled that a prohibition against atheists and other nonbelievers giving the opening invocation did not violate the Constitution’s Establishment Clause.

Since the guest chaplain policy was blocked, Turzai has been assigning the invocation to House members.​
