New “Bill of Rights” Monument Approved by Oklahoma Senate

New “Bill of Rights” Monument Approved by Oklahoma Senate

Public structures and displays are considered not only tourist attractions, but also representations of a state’s character. Public artwork and displays depict what the community values and wants to advocate.

The Oklahoma State Capitol could soon be adorned with a new monument on its grounds. The “Bill of Rights Monument Display Act” garnered unanimous support from the State Senate and will soon be heading to the House for consideration.

Last Tuesday, the Senate voted unanimously for the approval of the new act by Enid Republican Sen. Patrick Anderson. The bill specifies the construction of a new monument displaying the Bill of Rights, which are the first 10 amendments of the U.S. Constitution. The State Capitol Preservation Commission will be assigned with making the necessary arrangements for placement.

The “Bill of Rights” monument will be privately funded and will replace the “Ten Commandments” monument, which was removed last year due to its violation of separation of church and state.
