Governor Tate Reeves is scheduled to sign House Bill 1796 which allows the removal of the Mississippi State flag. The signing will take place at 5:00 PM. Reeves signature is the final part of the removal process.
The bill establishes a commission to develop a new flag design without the Confederate emblem that includes the phrase “In God, We Trust.” Mississippi state voters would then vote on the new design November 3, 2020.
If voters approve the new design, the new flag will be adopted.
If voters do not approve the new flag design, the commission will begin work on another design.
The voting process would continue until a new flag is approved.
