Update March 16, 4:07 p.m.:
The Post and Courier reports that The Patriots Point Development Authority voted 3-3 on the proposal to build a monument at the state-owned attraction that would mark South Carolina’s secession from the Union 150 years ago.
The tie vote means that the idea has failed.
The board of the Patriots Point Development Authority will consider today whether or not to allow the Sons of Confederate Veterans to erect an 11 and a half foot monument commemorating the state's secession from the Union almost 150 years ago.
