From Gov. Phil Bryant:
We pledged to Mississippians that we would make this the ‘public safety session’, and we have worked hard to develop a research-based plan that is tough on crime while using tax dollars wisely where they make the most impact,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “This bill ensures that violent criminals are held accountable for their crimes, and it provides a second chance to veterans and other Mississippians who have made mistakes want to take steps to get their lives back on track.
Gov. Bryant specifically thanked state Sen. Brice Wiggins of Pascagoula for his support in getting the bill passed.
