Mississippi Budget

The budget transparency and simplification act was intended to streamline spending by wiping out the practice of some state government agencies paying others for expenses such as rent and technology services. It also was supposed to move all “Special Funds,” which are fees collected for specific programs, into the general state budget. But, before the current budget year even started in July, Attorney General Jim Hood responded to agencies’ requests for legal advice. He said the legislature lacked the legal authority to move special funds into the general budget.
