Campaign spending bill headed to Mississippi governor's desk
Rep. Hank Zuber, R-Ocean Springs, had introduced bills for more than a decade to change spending practices.
"It's been 13 years," he said. "People laughed at me, and they made fun of me, and in some cases became upset with me. I feel vindicated."
A bill that would have imposed limits died in the House last year after some top Republicans questioned it. This year, House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, made changes a priority, personally walking the bill through a committee.
"We have worked hard to make this legislation as tight and as clear as possible," Gunn said in a statement Wednesday.
