Lawmakers in Michigan and Texas want their states to join Arizona and require high school seniors to pass a written civics test before they can graduate.
The questions would be drawn from the same test legal immigrants must take before they can become U.S. citizens.
Some of the material is comparatively easy for anyone who's seen Saturday Night Live – 'What is the name of the President of the United States?' – while others could be tricky for 18-year-olds who get their news from Facebook.
For instance: 'In what year was the U.S. Constitution written?' Hint: It's not 1776.
