  2 yrs | South Carolina Senate gives preliminary OK to take down Confederate battle flag at State House

              The South Carolina Senate has voted 37-3 in support of the Confederate Flag Bill that would take down the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the State House, but a third vote is required before it can move to the South Carolina House, where it will face three additional rounds of voting. The killings at a black church in Charleston last month sparked a debate over the use of the Confederate battle flag, which critics say has become a symbol of racism. Flags at the South Carolina State House were lowered to half staff after the shootings in Charleston, but the Confederate flag remained at full staff, angering many.
