Mississippi Senate Weekly Report - Feb. 14-21
JACKSON, February 14, 2014 – This week we passed Senate Bill 2394 that will allow corporations to purchase up to 160 acres of tax forfeited lands for their own purposes. This law could be a catalyst that helps cities revitalize dilapidated areas that otherwise might remain eyesores and pull down surrounding real estate values.
Another law that could help cities is Senate Bill 2771 that would force the operators of personal care homes housing more than three unrelated persons to be registered. The provision would ensure that the facilities, often located in single family residential zones, do not detract from the area and that they are open to inspection.
