MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -
The Alabama House of Representatives has approved a bill aimed at allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public schools and state buildings.
Representatives voted 77-19 Thursday for the proposed constitutional amendment that would also have to be approved by voters.
Valley Republican Rep. DuWayne Bridges says Alabama should celebrate the country's religious roots. He predicted that Alabamians would overwhelmingly approve the measure. The legislation specifies that the display would have to be intermingled with other historical documents.
Opposed lawmakers say the proposal is unconstitutional and that lawmakers were setting the state up for a lawsuit.
Some lawmakers tried unsuccessfully to amend the bill, suggesting that Bible verses or a copy of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech should be included in the display.
