The Oklahoma House has voted 83-to-2 to install a Ten Commandments monument at the state capitol.
The three-foot by six-foot monument would be similar to the one at the Texas State Capitol which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled as constitutional.
The bill's sponsor says his family will pay for the project at an estimated $10,000 and no state funds will be used.
A public prayer service was held near the Oklahoma Supreme Court and religious-themed displays were set up in the capitol building.
The measure now goes to the state senate.
