HOUSE BLOCKS ROAD FUNDING, MOVES TO SUPPORT INTERNET SALES TAX


Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves today reiterated his opposition to implementing an unconstitutional tax after Republicans and Democrats in the Mississippi House tried to block next year’s budget for the Department of Transportation.

After agreeing to a $1.2 billion budget for MDOT, the House reversed course on the agreement. They recommitted the budget bill, which forced the Senate to do the same.
“The question that must be answered within the hour is: do House Republicans want to raise your taxes so badly they’re willing to kill the budget agreement?” Lt. Gov. Reeves said. “Are they willing to risk $1.2 billion in spending on roads and bridges so they can pass an unconstitutional tax?”

The deadline is 6 p.m. today for House members to honor their commitment.
