Senators introduce resolution to change state flag
News Mississippi

Senators Derrick Simmons and David Blount have introduced a resolution that seeks to suspend the rules for consideration of Senate Bill 2446 to change the Mississippi state flag.

Senate Bill 2446 would have changed the design of the official flag of the state of Mississippi, however, the bill died in committee in March of this year.

Simmons and Blount are joined by the following senators in their resolution: John Horhn, Sollie Norwood, Joseph Thomas, David Jordan, Albert Butler, and Sampson Jackson.

The resolution will most likely be sent to the Rules Committee, and if it passes out of committee, the resolution would then be brought to the floor. A 2/3 vote in each chamber would be needed to allow for the introduction of a flag-changing bill.
