We opened last week with the Governor’s State of the State Address on Monday. I was pleased to hear Governor Reeves announce plans to close Parchman’s Unit 29 and that reopening the Walnut Grove facility is on the table.
House members received our committee assignments last week, and I am pleased to report that I will be serving on committees that can make a real difference for our district and the state.
Last week, we worked through the week introducing and passing House budget and bond bills in order to meet the deadline on Friday. While there were many issues considered and voted on, there were few controversial items before us during this time period which is often considered to be the calm before the storm.
