Bill seeks `In God We Trust' signage at Capitol

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Legislation that calls for the phrase ``In God We Trust'' to be displayed above the main Capitol entrances and behind the speakers' podiums in both the House and Senate has been approved by the Senate.


The proposal sponsored by Republican Sen. Stacey Campfield of Knoxville was approved 21-0 on Monday.


The measure is different than the companion bill that's scheduled for a House floor vote on Wednesday. It instructs the State Capitol Commission to study the feasibility of painting the national motto in the tunnel that connects the state Capitol and the Legislative Plaza.


The state adopted its official slogan ``Tennessee _ America at Its Best'' in 1965. The words ``Agriculture and Commerce'' from the state seal were adopted as the official state motto in 1987.
