S.C. Senate Gives Final OK to Remove Confederate Flag

The South Carolina Senate has given the final approval Tuesday to remove the Confederate battle flag from State House grounds, NBC News reported. The 36-3 vote Tuesday now sends the bill to the House, where it faces a less certain future. Several powerful House Republicans, including Speaker Jay Lucas, have not yet said how they'll vote. If the bill passes the house, it would head to the desk of Gov. Nikki Haley, who has said the flag's removal would be a way to honor the nine black victims gunned down by a white gunman at a Charleston church.
