Mental health bill barely passes in Senate
A bill squeaked by in the Senate 25-24 that would give the governor the authority to appoint the executive director of the Mississippi Department of Mental Health.
The bill was held on a motion to reconsider, which means it could come back for another vote by Monday's deadline to dispose of reconsideration motions.
A mental health board now oversees the agency and appoints the executive director.
