Who Decides Whether to Remove the Mississippi Flag From the Capitol?

Republicans want to hear from state leaders before taking action on the flag and its Confederate symbol. Democrats don't want to wait too long.

WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 23: The state flag of Mississippi, which incorporates the flag of the Confederate States of America in the top left corner, is displayed with the flags of the other 49 states and territories in the tunnel connecting the senate office building and the U.S. Capitol June 23, 2015 in Washington, DC. In the wake of an apparently racist shooting that left nine African Americans dead in Charleston, South Carolina, Gov. Nikki Haley has asked that the confederate flag, also known as the 'Stars and Bars,' be taken down from in front of the state capitol building, adding political pressure to Mississippi to remove the charged symbol from its flag.
