Republicans New Flag Public Vote

A bill backed by Republican lawmakers would put Minnesota’s new state flag and seal designs to a public vote this fall. 

Senator Steve Drazkowski from Mazeppa says, “We need to let the people of Minnesota have input and be heard in this process.” 

Drazkowski says if the public gives a thumbs-down, it’s back to the state flag and seal drawing board. 

Secretary of State Steve Simon says a public vote wouldn’t be constitutional because Minnesota doesn’t have initiative-and-referendum, and “the only statewide votes are for candidates or amendments to the Minnesota Constitution.”
