It's a win for collards.

S.C. House members voted 86-14 Thursday to make collard greens the state's official vegetable.

The bill, introduced by state Sen. Jake Knotts, R-Lexington, sparked debate among lawmakers about whether the proposal was a waste of legislative time.

The bill now heads to Gov. Nikki Haley's desk for her signature or veto.
