Senate blocks bill to put governor over mental health dept.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Senate has reconsidered and killed a bill that would let the governor appoint the Department of Mental Health director.
Senate Bill 2567 passed the Senate last week but was put on hold. Senators voted not to release the bill to the House before a Monday deadline, and that killed it.
