Governor advocating for two statewide votes: state flag, transportation tax

JACKSON – If second-term Gov. Phil Bryant has his way, 2018 could be a busy year for Mississippi voters.

The Republican governor voiced support earlier this week for placing on the ballot for voters to decide:

Whether to pay additional taxes (presumably on gasoline and other items) to raise revenue for transportation needs on the state and local level.

Whether to change the Mississippi flag, which has the controversial Confederate battle emblem as part of its design.
