State Rep. Thomas Carmody, R-Shreveport, has introduced legislation to formally declare the Bible as the official state book of Louisiana. The matter will be taken up during this spring's state lawmaking session, which begins March 10.
But, Carmody doesn't want just any Bible to be Louisiana's official state book. Specifically, he's selected the oldest edition of the Bible in the Louisiana State Museum system as his top choice. The book was published by Johannes Prevel, who worked as a printer from 1510 to 1528, according to the legislation.
Not to be outdone, state Sen. John Smith, R-Leesville, has submitted legislation to declare the mayhaw fruit tree the official state fruit tree of Louisiana. And state Sen. Rick Ward, R-Port Allen, has resurrected legislation from last year to declare the American Paint Horse the official state horse of Louisiana....
