Sweet potato could be Alabama's official state vegetable

Alabama might soon name the sweet potato as its official state vegetable.

The Alabama Legislature approved the bill 94-4 on Tuesday, sending it to Gov. Kay Ivey.

The state already has an official state fruit, bird and amphibian.

The idea to name the state vegetable came from a Harvest homeschool class.
