SACRAMENTO -- State senators of both political parties are supporting a bill that would allow a statue of Ronald Reagan to be placed inside the California Capitol.
Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff, a Republican from Diamond Bar, says the actor-turned-politician deserves a special place inside the Capitol because he is the only California governor to become president. It would be the first statue of a former governor.
Lawmakers took turns praising Reagan on Tuesday for actions that reflect their own political philosophies.
Republicans recalled the mark he made on the nation and world affairs.
Democrats lauded the Republican president for raising taxes and signing environmental protection laws as governor and backing immigrant rights as president.
AB2358 passed the Senate 31-0. It returns to the Assembly for a final vote.
