Senator Seeks Monument at State Capitol

Posted: Updated:

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A Republican state senator from Enid is filing a bill authorizing a monument of the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution to be placed on the Capitol grounds.
 
Senator Patrick Anderson announced on Friday his plans to introduce the bill during the legislative session that begins in February.
 
The bill calls for the privately funded monument to be placed at the Capitol, and Anderson says more than two dozen legislators already have signed on as co-authors.
 
Legislators in 2009 authorized the placement of a privately funded monument of the Ten Commandments, and a lawsuit has been filed seeking its removal.
 
Meanwhile, a group of New York-based Satanists and a Hindu leader from Nevada each have expressed interest in donating monuments to be erected at the Oklahoma Capitol.
