Report: Mississippi remains dependent on federal dollars



Mississippi remains on the federal dole, with federal tax dollars making up 42.1 percent of state revenue — nearly as much as it collects in taxes — a new report by the Pew Charitable Trusts shows....



...Census data show Mississippi received more than $7.2 billion in federal aid for 2014.

A report earlier this year by WalletHub, "Most Federally Dependent States," ranked Mississippi as second-most federally dependent, trailing Kentucky. That study ranked Mississippi residents as seventh most dependent on federal dollars and its state government as the first most dependent.
