The Kansas House is considering a bill to allow some religious symbols on public land.
That could change things for the city of Buhler, that has plans to take the cross off the city's seal.
State Tepresenative Don Schroeder proposed the bill.
He says he was disturbed about the cases in Buhler and McPherson, where local governments are being threatened.
"Hopefully it will help clarify that if a community has certain values that they're able to express them but of course anything they do will still be subject any policies they have regarding signs," says Shroeder.
Buhler has already made plans to take the cross off the city seal.
It held a contest where two high school students designed a new one.
Cassandra and Stephen Zook heard about the controversy surrounding Buhler's seal and decided to design a new one.
It features Abraham Buhler and has a sunrise, wheat field and sunflowers. Zook said she researched Buhler's history and wanted to be inclusive of all.
"I felt that the sign should include all faiths and all beliefs and be accepting of all people that want to come to visit," says Cassandra Zook.
Buhler has not yet removed it's sign. The mayor says the city council has tabled the issue until further notice.
With this new bill in committee, supporters are hopeful that the city may get to keep it's seal.
Congressman Schroeder says he hopes he bill makes it through the Senate.
