Mississippi Ends 2013 Regular Session
The Mississippi Legislature adjourned sine die on April 4, 2013.
Despite approving a budget for fiscal year 2014, lawmakers will need to return for a special session to reauthorize the Medicaid program. Reauthorization efforts stalled due to a dispute over whether to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
A special session will be needed prior to the start of the fiscal year on July 1 to keep the program funded.
