Hosemann talks flag, CARES Act

Lieutenant Governor Delbert Hosemann will be sending the recently introduced flag resolution to committee today when the Mississippi Senate gavels in at 3:00 p.m. today.

“Sometime today, I’ll assign [the resolution] to a committee as the first step in every legislative process begins with a committee structure,” Hosemann said on this morning’s episode of The Gallo Show. “The resolution will go to committee, and if it comes out, the Senate is going to vote on it.”

While the first-term lieutenant governor did not offer his own personal opinion regarding the removal of the current state flag, he did assert that “it’s time for that discussion to occur.”

“I kind of expect Mississippians to start looking for a flag of the future, whether it be the one that we may have now or a newer one.”
