Albany-- Albany City commissioners decided to put off a decision on whether to proclaim April as Confederate History and Heritage Month.
Earlier this month, Sons of Confederacy member James King asked commissioners to recognize confederate history next month. The city attorney drew up a resolution.
Commissioner Tommie Postell said he wasn't aware that was going to happen and he thinks city leaders need to consider this issue carefully before they vote on it.
"I don't feel comfortable voting for this because we're going to have a clandestine type of environment. To create this kind of problem could be chaotic for the city and the county," says Postell.
Commissioners tabled the issue until April 4th.
