Acadome resolution back again

Senate Majority Leader Zeb Little introduced, and the Senate passed on a voice vote on Tuesday, a resolution renaming the athletic arena at Alabama State University after Joe Reed, a former trustee at the university, and a top official with the Alabama Democratic Party and the Alabama Education Association.
The resolution, which is not binding, now goes to the House of Representatives for consideration.
ASU trustees voted to strip the name from the Acadome after a disagreement between Reed and other members of the board at the time.
Renaming the Acadome was a contentious issue during the last legislative session, but senators did not discuss the resolution before approving it on Tuesday.
