4:07 p.m. update: Members of the South Carolina Senate have voted 37-3 to remove the Confederate battle flag from the Statehouse grounds.
Sen. Lee Bright, R-Roebuck, objected to giving the bill automatic third reading, which is usually a procedural vote, on Tuesday. For the bill to be sent to the House, it will need a two-thirds vote.
Monday’s three ‘nay’ votes were from Bright, and Sens. Harvey Peeler and Danny Verdin. Plus, for the bill to be amended on third reading, it would need a three-fifths vote.
