Amendment on state flag at public universities tabled at House meeting
JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Lawmakers in House have decided to table an amendment that would require some Mississippi universities to fly the state flag.
On two separate bills, Rep. William Shirley proposed an amendment that would require some state schools to fly the state flag. If they don’t they wouldn’t receive certain tax breaks.
The amendment passed in the Senate last week, but lawmakers apart of the House decided in a meeting Monday to table it.
