Group hopes to place Jefferson Davis statue on Military Heritage Commission's list

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A controversial statue in the Capitol rotunda could become more difficult to remove. 

A group is hoping to place the Jefferson Davis statue on the Military Heritage Commission's list of military sites and objects. 

If approved, the Kentucky Military Heritage Commission would have to give approval before the statue could ever be moved. 

Right now, the state Historic Properties Advisory Commission has the sole authority over statues in the Capitol. 

Last August, they voted to keep the statue in the building.
