The sweet potato could soon be the official state vegetable of Alabama.

The Alabama Legislature on Tuesday gave final approval to a bill to name the sweet potato as the official state vegetable.

The House of Representatives voted 94-4 for the bill, sending it on to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey for her signature.

Alabama has a long list of official state emblems, including an official state fruit, bird and amphibian.

Alabama Senate Delays Lottery Vote Amid Divisions

  A divided Alabama Senate has delayed a vote on lottery legislation.

Republican Sen. Jim McClendon of Springville on Wednesday asked to carry his bill over until another day.

McClendon said he feared he did not have enough votes to pass the measure.

The delay came as the bill faced a filibuster and an effort to change the bill to authorize casinos in the state.

McClendon said he wanted to delay a vote in order to keep the bill alive. Alabama is one of five states without a state lottery.
