Mississippi state budget hearings begin

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Mississippi state agencies are asking lawmakers to show them the money. Agencies are requesting about $600-700 million dollars more this year.
Still, they know they're competing for a shrinking piece of the pie if last year was any indication.

"We did see most state agencies took a year over year budget cut anywhere from 1% to the highest was 13-14%," said Lt. Governor Tate Reeves. "There are those that will tell you that they cannot take even a 1% budget cut and I'll just tell you, I just don't believe that."
