Both chambers of the Mississippi Legislature on Saturday voted to pass a resolution that would allow the lawmaking body to vote on a bill to change the state flag, which is the last flag in the nation that contains a Confederate battle flag.

To pass the resolution, the lawmakers had to agree to the resolution by a two-thirds majority vote. Now, the legislators can begin discussing and debating a bill to change the flag.
