Harrison County Republican Women’s Meeting

By Clip Syndicate
A lot has happened since our state legislature closed its session three months ago such as the green light for Mississippi collecting online sales tax revenue, sports betting as casinos, and more.  Could the governor call a special legislative session to address these and other matters? First the good news: “Unemployment is at the lowest record we’ve ever had. Ingalls, which is in my district, is hiring and they continue to hire,” said Senator Brice Wiggins. Mississippi’s 2018 legislative session wrapped up three months ago, but State Senator Brice Wiggins points out there’s still unfinished business, namely just how the state’s BP money will be allocated, a question state lawmakers have wrangled over the past three years. “It’s not over yet. Of course, everybody asks will it be part of the special session. I think the Governor would like to see it happen.” The next legislative session is set to reopen in January next year, but Senator Wiggins tells News 25 the governor could call a special session in the next few weeks to address infrastructure funding and other important matters. “With the recent Supreme Court decisions on the revenue, the sports gambling, and the sales tax, that would likely be included.” As well as allocating the state’s BP funds. Senator Wiggins says currently about $100 million is just sitting in the state’s general fund, all money he says could be put to good use right now. He points to needs created by the unprecedented record high number of children in South Mississippi foster care, citing this as just one of the many adverse effects of the 2010 oil spill. “So, I hope my colleagues in the legislature and the other parts of the state will recognize that.” The sooner, he says, the better.
