State budget uncertainty


Work continues at the state capitol after the Mississippi legislature did not make much progress on ironing out a budget Sunday after a contentious process the day before.
Most major bills are being hammered out in conference. The bills are known as dummy bills, meaning they do not have real dollar amounts attached to them. Those bills are expected to be finalized today.
Mississippi’s budget faces major cuts this year. The legislature failed to come up with a bond bill, meaning the state cannot borrow any money.
On top of that, Governor Phil Bryant has already made $170 million in cuts.
