South Carolina House Votes To Remove Confederate Flag From Statehouse Grounds

South Carolina’s House of Representatives gave final approval early Thursday to remove the Confederate flag that has flown for more than 50 years on statehouse grounds. The vote came after a lengthy and contentious debate.
Governor. Nikki Haley is expected to sign the measure into law when it arrives at her desk, which will likely be later on Thursday.
The bill was passed on a 94 to 20 vote. It would remove the Confederate flag from statehouse grounds and move it to the Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum in Columbia. The flag could be taken down as early as Friday.
The debate that started on Wednesday lasted more than 13 hours.
