Senate approves Bible bill

March 28, 2006

Valdosta - Georgia high school students will likely have the option of studying the Bible and religion soon.

The Senate voted 45 to two for a bill that will allow Georgia school systems to create classes on the Old and New Testaments. The class would be offered as an elective and no students would be required to participate.

Students we talked to think its a good idea.  "I'm very interested in religion and I think a lot of people don't really understand it, so I think this class would broaden everyone's horizons," said Kaylen Wells. 

The bill has already been approved by the House. It now awaits Governor Perdue's signature.
