House Appropriations Committee chairman, Johnny Stringer, a Democrat from Montrose, said details of his proposal haven't been worked out, but the package could include higher taxes on liquor and casinos.

In 2001, the Mississippi Legislature opted to let the voters decide whether they wanted to keep the old state flag, which was offensive to some because of its ties to the Civil War, or to adopt a new flag. The old flag stayed.

Stringer says a vote on a proposed tax-increase package would be a similar way to let people decide a big issue.
