Today the Arkansas Senate passed a bill authorizing the State of Arkansas to place a monument of the Ten Commandments on the Capitol grounds.

The bill passed with 27 senators voting for it; 3 senators voting against it; 3 senators not voting; and 1 senator voting “Present.”

If passed, the bill would allow the State to work with private entities to pay for the monument and defend its constitutionality in court. You can see how your senator voted here.

The bill now goes to the Arkansas House of Representatives for consideration.
