Missouri House panel hears bill to study state flag
Wed, 05 Feb 2014 14:28:21 GMT — A Missouri House committee is considering legislation that would create a commission to study the state's official flag. The House Veterans Committee held a public hearing Tuesday on the measure. Sponsoring Rep. Jeff Roorda, of Barnhart, says it would give Missouri the opportunity to adopt a new flag, if officials decide a change is needed. The nine-person commission would hold public hearings around the state, then submit a report to the governor, secretary of state and lawmakers on whether the flag should be altered. The state's official flag was adopted in 1913, nearly 100 years after Missouri became a state. The committee did not vote on the measure.
