NASHVILLE (AP) - A proposal that would allow public buildings to display such "historically significant documents" as the Ten Commandments, the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence is headed to the governor for his consideration.

The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Mike Bell of Riceville was unanimously approved 30-0 by the Senate on Monday evening. The companion bill unanimously passed the House 93-0 last week.

The proposal would allow the documents to be displayed in the form of statues, monuments, memorials, tablets or in any other way that in the words of the legislation "respects the dignity and solemnity of such documents."
