Georgia to place Ten Commandments in public schools and buildings

Bill: HB766 (PDF)

Sponsored by Rep. Tommy Benton, and signed into law by Gov. Nathan Deal, HB766 broadly expands Georgia’s 2006 law HB941 that allows historical documents such as the Ten Commandments to be displayed in courthouses. HB766 broadens the 2006 law so that the Ten Commandments and other documents of historic religious significance may be displayed in public schools and public buildings.
