Key reform bills still alive in Mississippi Legislature

House Bill 144 would make the Department of Revenue liable if it erroneously hits a taxpayer with a lien.
H.B. 480 would force online sellers to pay Mississippi’s 7 percent sales tax. Amazon has already agreed to collect Mississippi state sales tax. The bill passed the full House Feb.1 on a 79-38 vote. Only 22 of 74 Republicans in the chamber voted against it.
H.B. 511 would mandate that Mississippi drivers stay in the right lane, except to pass. A ticket would impose a fine no less than $5 and no more than $50.
H.B. 555 would require the state’s attorney general to seek permission from the governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state before filing lawsuits with a recovery amount of $250,000 or more.
H.B. 711 would reauthorize the state’s motion picture and television production subsidy program, which is due to expire this year.
