House demands more roads funding

The chamber voted almost unanimously to send House Bill 1509 and Senate Bill 2978, two bills that fund the Mississippi Department of Transportation, back for more negotiation between House and Senate committee members.

“There’s a lot of give and take in politics, and some people seem more intent on always taking and never doing much giving,” said Rep. Charles Busby, R-Pascagoula.

The move comes after a bond bill that would have provided millions for construction at colleges, community colleges and of roads and bridges died over the weekend.
