It appears that a potential vote to change the Mississippi state flag will have to wait a little while longer.
The House Rules Committee, which is where a resolution to suspend the rules of the legislature would originate, met this morning without taking up such a measure.
The House Rules committee has adjourned their morning meeting without taking up a resolution to suspend the rules to change the state flag.

The resolution must clear the committee before heading to the House floor, where it must receive a two-thirds vote in order to be sent over to the Senate. If the two-thirds majority is achieved, debate on the actual bill can begin. To pass the bill, a simple majority of the House and Senate would be required.
Both chambers are currently in session.
This is a developing story.
