Mississippi- Haley Barbour said Monday that he will not sign the legislation in Mississippi to honor a former Ku Klux Klan leader with a state-issued license plate. The proposal is part of the Mississippi Sons of Confederate Veterans push to use state license plates to recognize the 150th anniversary of what it calls “the War Between the States.”

“The bureaucracy denied it, the legislature won’t pass it and if the legislature passes it, it won’t become law because I won’t sign it,” Barbour told the Associated Press in an interview – a change from when he had earlier declined to take a position against the measure.
