Gates: No leadership on the flag issue

Rep. William Shirley, R- Quitman, tried last week to add the amendment to another bill, but a question arose as to whether the amendment could be attached to the bond bill.

Gunn said he would rule on the issue likely on Monday.

Gunn acknowledged the divisiveness of the state flag issue, pointing to the 57-56 vote on the amendment.

“I don’t think you could get 62 votes either way,” Gunn said of the number that would be a majority in the 122-member House.
