December 10-- State Representative Greg Morris of Vidalia has pre-filed legislation to erect a monument of the Ten Commandments as well as the preambles to the United States Constitution and the Georgia Constitution in the state capitol.

Morris. “If we as a nation want to reclaim our greatness, we must stand up for the principles that made our nation great in the beginning. Those of us who are elected by the people should lead the way.

House Bill 702, which will be introduced in the 2014 legislative session, would erect this monument where the statue of Tom Watson once stood.  The statue of Watson was removed from the Capitol grounds earlier this year.

The proposed granite statue would be located near the State Capitol’s front entrance and include both Constitutions on one side and the Ten Commandments on the other.
