The State Senate has just made a major decision that will affect the confederate flag that is flying at a Civil War Memorial near the state capitol building.
According to the Associated Press/TheBlaze:
The South Carolina Senate has voted to remove the Confederate flag from a pole on Statehouse grounds.
The 37-3 vote Monday allows the state to remove the flag and the flagpole where it flies as soon as it passes the House and is signed by Gov. Nikki Haley.
The bill must pass a two-thirds vote, which is likely to be held Tuesday.
The Governor has previously called for the flag to be removed and it is believed she will promptly sign any legislation that reaches her desk.
The flag has found itself at the center of a national controversy following the murder of 9 people at a historically black church in Charleston, SC last month. The suspected killer was linked to a website that showed him prominently pictured with confederate flags.
How do you feel about this decision and what do you think the South Carolina House will vote tomorrow?
