Rep. Dwight Tosh (R-Jonesboro) has filed a resolution recommending the Bible be recognized as Arkansas’ State Book.

Arkansas has a state bird; a state flower; a state gem; a state instrument; and we even have a state butterfly. There’s no reason we should not have a state book, and what better book is there than the Bible?

H.R. 1047 supports recognition of the Bible as Arkansas’ state book. The Arkansas House of Representatives could vote on this resolution this afternoon.

You can ask your state rep to support H.R. 1047 by calling 501-682-6211.
