Fallin: Ten Commandments to remain up during GOP-led fight

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Gov. Mary Fallin says a Ten Commandments monument will remain on the Capitol grounds while legislators and the state's attorney general fight an order from Oklahoma's highest court to have it removed.
 
   Fallin released a statement Tuesday saying the monument won't be moved while Attorney General Scott Pruitt seeks a rehearing on the case and legislators seek to repeal an amendment to the state constitution.
 
   The Oklahoma Legislature won't be back in session until February, and any amendment to the constitution would have to be submitted to a vote of the people.
 
   Fallin says she does not intend to ignore the state courts or their decisions, but her spokesman Alex Weintz says she is giving the other two co-equal branches of government ``a chance to weigh in on the issue.''
