Mississippi Gov. Calls Special Session
Gov. Phil Bryant has called a special session for June 28, 2016. The Governor is asking lawmakers to give him authorization to use the state’s rainy day fund, known as the Working Cash Stabilization Reserve Fund, to cover the nearly $75 million budget deficit.
If approved, it will be the third time Bryant has had to take such action. The shortfall has been blamed on lagging tax collection so far this year.
