A Republican state Senator has prefiled a bill that would remove public schools from Alabama’s Monument Preservation Law.
Sen. Dick Brewbaker, R-Montgomery, said Tuesday that he filed a bill that would put the decision to change the name of a public school back into the hands of local county and school officials. Under current Alabama law, passed last Legislative Session, changing the name of a public school that’s 20 years old or older would require petitioning an 11-member board.
