The GOP House representatives approved the bill almost finally on Monday, bringing Tennessee closer to adopting laws akin to those in states like Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, and North Carolina. Virginia also provides similar guidance to school boards.

The bill will return for another vote in the Senate, which had previously approved a version of it, before reaching Gov. Bill Lee's desk for final approval.
