Supreme Court Keeps Heritage Act; But Not Two-Thirds Approval Rule


(Columbia, SC) -- South Carolina's Heritage Act is being upheld by the state's highest court. 

The South Carolina Supreme Court determined the law that prevents the moving of Confederate monuments or the renaming of streets or buildings without lawmakers' approval is legal. 

But the ruling did strike down part of the law that was passed in 2000, which says two-thirds of the General Assembly must give approval for the change.
