SC House approves bill to remove Confederate flag

COLUMBIA, SC (WALB) -

Following a debate that lasted into the early morning hours Thursday, the South Carolina House approved a second reading of a senate bill to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state house.

The House approved the Senate bill 93-27. It will now go to the governor's desk and the flag, which had stood for more than 50 years, could come down in the next few days.
