MS 2021 legislative session set to reconvene January 5th

State legislators are scheduled to meet at the capitol in Jackson on Tuesday, January 5th for the opening of next year’s legislative session, but there is some talk that date could possibly be delayed due to COVID concerns despite the January 5th reconvening is constitutionally mandated.

No official word yet on whether the January 5th reconvening date will be rescheduled.  In the meantime, Coast lawmakers are preparing for 2021.

News 25 checked in with South Mississippi District 52 State Senator Brice Wiggins to see what tops his legislative agenda in 2021. “I think a lot of what we are going to be focusing on is how to keep the economy going and running and not fall deeper into recession or whatever you want to call it with the Coronavirus, and things like that. I think that really, the budget is the biggest thing we have, so we’re looking at that. I’ve spent a lot of time looking at the court system, reforms we can do there. I’m looking forward to that. Of course, I’ve always been big on early education and looking to increase the funding we have for the early learning collaboratives.

Lt. Governor Delbert Hosemann recently placed Senator Wiggins as judiciary, a chairman of the Mississippi Senate.
