Congressman Steven Palazzo issues statement about the House moving to ban the Confederate flag from federal cemeteries

JACKSON, MS – Congressman Steven Palazzo does not agree with the House passing an amendment to the FY2016 Interior Appropriations bill that would ban the display of the Confederate flag at federal cemeteries.

He says:

 “I strongly oppose the inclusion of this amendment, which was slipped into the bill in the dead of night with no debate. Congress cannot simply re-write history and strip the Confederate flag from existence. Members of Congress from New York and California cannot wipe away 150 years of Southern history with sleight-of-hand tactics. I will fight to ensure that this language is not included in any bill signed into law.”
