Will Mississippi ban state agencies from hiring lobbyists?

A bill passed by the Mississippi Senate could end the practice of state agencies hiring outside lobbyists.

The measure passed last week would prohibit state agencies — which includes the state’s universities and community colleges — from using taxpayer funds to hire contract lobbyists.

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves told Mississippi Watchdog that getting rid of the practice is a “no-brainer.” He said his staff found that agencies have spent more than $500,000 on lobbyists in the current fiscal year.
