The state will move one step closer to a lawsuit on May 11, when the Capitol Arts and Grounds Commission will hear the American History and Heritage Foundation's plans for a Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the state Capitol. There won't be any public comment, the Associated Press reports. The secretary of state will have to sign off on the commission's decision.
