ASB previously passed the resolution 33-15 with one abstaining vote Tuesday.

The final decision will be up to senior university officials and Acting Chancellor Morris Stocks on whether or not the flag will come down.

If Stocks agrees with the Associated Student Body and faculty senate, Ole Miss will be the fourth college in Mississippi to remove the flag from campus.
