I haven’t shared as much about this year’s Mississippi legislative session as I have in years past. My description of this year’s session can only be stated as dismal at best. You can read the article for all of the details.
Below are a couple of quotes from the article from 2 of our DeSoto House Reps, Dan Eubanks and Steve Hopkins, who have done a great job for our county. I think we are very blessed in DeSoto to have 7 great Representatives and 3 great Senators.
Quotes from Dan and Steve:
“Overall, it was disappointing, I think, that we didn’t accomplish more than we accomplished this session,” said Rep. Dan Eubanks, R-Walls. “It was disappointing we didn’t get anywhere on infrastructure or ed funding. The House was doing its part. We worked hard right out of the chute. For whatever reason, the Senate couldn’t deliver.”
“I don’t know that you’d call it a success or a failure,” said Rep. Steve Hopkins, R-Southaven. “You did have the Medicaid bill pass. I’m glad the 15-week abortion bill passed. There were good things, and some worrisome bills that we were able to keep from happening.”
