The Mississippi state House on Saturday voted to advance legislation to change its state flag, which includes the stars and bars of the Confederacy in one corner.
The Hill reports:
The chamber advanced the bill by an 84-35 margin, allowing lawmakers in the state House to reach the two-thirds majority needed to suspend the rules to consider the change.
The House will now be able to vote on the legislation and it will go to the Senate if passed.
Republican Gov. Tate Reeves said Saturday that he will sign the legislation if it reaches his desk.
