Senate votes to approve new state flag
Mississippi lawmakers are finishing the process of adopting the new state flag with a magnolia and the phrase ‘In God we Trust.’
It’s happening six months after legislators retired the last state flag in the U.S. with the confederate battle emblem.
Voters approved the new Magnolia flag in November after a commission recommended the design.
Senators today voted 38-7 to pass such a bill and that followed a 119-1 House vote yesterday.
Republican Governor Tate Reeves is expected to sign the bill into law in the next few days.
