This week in your Senate, we faced a floor deadline at midnight on Thursday. Your Senate worked and debated bills until 9:30 P.M. on Thursday night. Of those bills passing from the Senate, the following should give you an idea of those moving off the floor.
Your Mississippi Senate was in full swing last week with the deadline for committee action passing on Tuesday and floor debate beginning on Wednesday morning. Overall, the Senate moved over 100 bills off the Senate Calendar by the end of the week on Friday.
The Senate started last week off with the State of the State address given by Governor Tate Reeves. He challenged the legislature to make strides in education and healthcare across the state while being responsible to the taxpayers. It was a pleasure to be a part of the escort committee to accompany him to the platform.
The Senate continued business last week with the committee meetings taking place to finalize organization. Senators continued to work on the drafting of their individual bills as the deadlines are quickly approaching.
This week will include the meeting of the sub-committees of the Appropriations Committee and other committees.
