Bill That Would Require State Approval to Remove Confederate Monuments Fails in Senate

One obstacle down

Infrogmation of New Orleans

One of the obstacles that has arisen after City Council voted to take down New Orleans' confederate monuments was a bill filed that would require state approval before taking down similar monuments. After a 4-5 vote, the bill failed in a Senate committee this morning.

Still no word on if any contractors will be willing to do the project.
