The tweet comes after North Dakota state Representative Aaron McWilliams appeared for an interview Monday, saying he was co-sponsoring a bill in his state.
Other states bringing forward proposals include Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia, Virginia, and Florida.
The measures would mandate or encourage schools to offer elective courses to teach the historical significance of the bible.
