Ten Commandments Amendment

By  | 

The Alabama Senate approved a proposed constitutional amendment Thursday that would authorize the display of the Ten Commandments in state buildings.

The legislation, which passed the Senate on a 25-0 vote, comes after the court-ordered removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Judicial Building last month.

The legislation now goes to the House. The sponsor, Lineville Senator Gerald Dial, said he would try to get it passed, but the Legislature's special session will likely end before the House has time to vote.

If that happens, Dial said he'll try again when the Legislature meets in February.
