Legislature balances ‘14 budget
The Mississippi Legislature ended the 2014 session earlier this month after passing a balanced, $6 billion budget, continuing to invest in education and implementing measures to make governgovernment more transparent and efficient, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said.
Fighting for Mississippi values
The Legislature took steps to protect Mississippians’ religious rights by passing Senate Bill 2681, which guarantees government cannot interfere with Mississippians’ right to exercise religion. The bill also adds “In God We Trust” to the state seal.
“Mississippians have a strong faith, which we hold dear, and this bill reflects the values I share with our citizens,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said.
