Senator Briggs Hopson hopes for prompt special session


PINE BELT, MS. - Lawmakers will meet in Jackson June 5 for a special session called by Governor Phil Bryant last month to discuss the 2018 fiscal budget.

Legislators ended their regular session in March without passing budgets for the Department of Transportation and Attorney General's Office.

Mississippi State Senator Briggs Hopson tells FOX 23 he is hoping both the House and Senate will find a prompt solution for the unmet budgets.

“You know I would hope so. I talk to a few people just in passing and we haven’t gathered together to know for sure, but I am hoping that people are ready to get down to business and get it done quickly" said Senator Hopson.

Legislators must come up with a budget before the new fiscal year on July 1.
