OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Senate has given final approval to a bill to permit a Ten Commandments monument to be erected on the grounds of the state Capitol.

The bill now goes to Gov. Brad Henry.

The executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Barry Lynn, is urging Henry to veto the bill.

Lynn says the bill is unconstitutional and "it's begging for a legal challenge."
