NASHVILLE, Tenn - Lawmakers in the Tennessee House and Senate have reached a compromise on a bill that would protect schools from lawsuits involving religious displays. The House voted in favor in the bill 83-4, and last month the bill passed unanimously in the Senate.
The legislation will allow schools to display religious symbols or scenes associated with various holidays. The bill would allow the displays if they include more than one religion, or one religion and a secular scene or symbol.
