Legislative leaders' budget work soon going public

JACKSON – The long and winding road that leads to the Legislature’s finally passing a state budget for the upcoming fiscal year, beginning July 1, goes public later this week.

On Thursday and Friday, the 14-member Legislative Budget Committee, led by Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, will hear requests for funding from key agency heads. Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, also is on the Budget Committee and rotates on an annual basis with the lieutenant governor as chairman of the panel.

For the past couple of months, the more than 100 agencies, boards and commissions the Legislature funds each year have been developing their budget proposals to submit to the staff of the Legislative Budget Committee.
