KENTUCKY (KFVS) - A bill that would require the Kentucky State Board of Education to develop guidelines for Bible literacy courses is on its way to Gov. Bevin's desk.

The state Senate gave final passage yesterday.

The state Senate gave final passage to House Bill 128 on Wednesday, March 29. The bill would require the state board to develop administrative regulations for elective social studies courses on the Bible.
