MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AL.com) — A proposal to allow Ten Commandments displays in public schools and state-owned buildings is on its way to voters and will be on the ballot in November.
The House of Representatives passed the proposed constitutional amendment by a vote of 66-19 today. The bill is by Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville, who has sponsored similar measures for years.
The bill says the Ten Commandments can be displayed as part of a larger display with other historical or education items. Unlike a regular bill, it does not require the governor's because it is a constitutional amendment.
