The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 456: Relief in State Legislatures

From the May 12, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Removal of Confederate monuments stirs backlash in statehouses.  (CNN)  (Win)   I am glad to see at least some support in the legislatures.

The anti-Confederate organization Southern Poverty Law Center says that at least 60 publicly funded symbols of the Confederacy have been removed since the Charleston murders, but state laws are being passed or pushed through state governments to prevent local governments from removing Confederate monuments and symbols.

North Carolina and Tennessee already have laws on the books.  Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Virginia are working on laws to do that.
