Medicaid reauthorization will not be addressed
Lawmakers will return to Jackson on Friday, April 26, for a special session.
The session will likely focus on economic incentives for an automobile manufacturer considering building a manufacturing plant in Clay County, but Governor Bryant would only say it relates to the state’s automobile corridor.
The state’s Medicaid reauthorization will be addressed in a separate special session.

Economic incentives and Medicaid could be on the table
A special session of the Legislature may convene at the end of April. Lawmakers have said they were told to report back on April 29, but a spokesperson for Governor Bryant would not confirm a special session or date.
It’s expected the session, if called, will involve economic incentives for an automotive supplier. It’s not clear if the Legislature will tackle Medicaid reauthorization in the same session, though lawmakers speculate a separate special session will be held.
