Some Virginia Confederate monuments could be removed under new law

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Some of Virginia's scores of Confederate monuments could soon be removed under legislation state lawmakers approved Sunday.


The Democratic-led House and Senate passed measures that would undo an existing state law that protects the monuments and instead let local governments decide their fate. The passage marks the latest turn in Virginia's long-running debate over how its history should be told in public spaces.
