Senate Approves Bill Aimed at Ten Commandments
The Senate also approves a bill aimed at allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed in schools and government buildings despite claims of unconstitutional establishment of religion.
Senators voted 23-to-3 for the proposed constitutional amendment. The display would have to be mingled with other historical materials in an effort to pass constitutional muster.
The bill’s sponsor, Senator Gerald Dial says voters have the final say, but Senator Bobby Singleton says if the bill is passed he predicts there would be lawsuits to follow. The bill now moves to the House of Representatives.
