Officials no longer taking requests for new monuments at State Capitol
OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials are no longer taking new requests for monuments at the State Capitol.
This follows recent display requests from Satanists, Hindus and animal rights activists.
The Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission approved the moratorium unanimously.
We’re told it will stay in place until a dispute over the current Ten Commandments monument is settled.
According to the commission chairman, this ban will not affect plans to build a Bill of Rights monument at the Capitol, however, that display is privately funded by a state senator.
