Gov. Bryant Approves Special Session Bill, Providing Aid for Tornado Recovery

JACKSON, Miss. – Mississippi gets more help for tornado recovery. Governor Phil Bryant signed a bill passed by the Mississippi legislature during a special session Thursday, allowing MEMA to have access to $17 million in order to pay back governments for cleaning up storm debris.

Originally Bryant asked for legislature to approve up to $20 million. Initial estimates said last week’s storms did over $13.5 million in damages.
