NASHVILLE, TN (WMC) -

The Tennessee Senate voted to pass a bill making the Bible the official state book of Tennessee.

The bill will now turn to Governor Bill Haslam for approval.

Haslam said last week that he is opposed to making the Bible the official state book. However, he has not said whether he would veto the bill.

Last year, a similar bill to make the Bible the official state book of Mississippi died in the state congress
