Complements of the Republican Super-Majority

Senators left in the dark about new education funding bill 

Ask your state senator what’s going on with the proposed new education funding bill and you’re likely to hear back “I don’t know.” Twenty Republican senators told Mississippi Today in interviews this week that they are not privy to Senate leadership plans for the House public education bill. Couple those 20 Republicans with the 19 Democrats who are rarely consulted on legislative plans and that means at least 39 of the 52 Mississippi state senators don’t have a clue about what’s going to happen on education funding more than a month into the legislative session.
