This morning Gov. Phil Bryant was with News Mississippi talking about three specific issues facing legislature and the state today.
He told Courtney Carter that the Legislature will be dealing with the budget very early on.
“It’s important that they begin to realize that the budget is the most important thing we deal with in Legislature, appropriating funds,” said Gov. Bryant.
He also said you could hear discussions on education and how superintendents are selected for each school district.
Recently in Madison County Will Longwitz was appointed to County Judge.
His seat now as a senator will need to be filled within that district. Gov. Bryant says that they will schedule an election roughly 45 days after his appointment in order to fill that seat.
Last week there were 9 pharmacies raided in the state by the FBI.
Gov. Bryant could not comment much on the details of that investigation because it is still ongoing but he did give credit to the Bureau for bringing accountability to the federal funding of the medicare and Medicaid programs.
