WJTV – Mississippi’s tinted window regulations

State lawmakers are looking at a bill that would tighten up the state’s regulation of tinted windows, so police can see inside vehicles.

Legislators are considering House Bill 1535 to remove a medical exemption.

Currently, people with sensitivity to sunlight may get a doctor’s note saying they need darker tint than state law allows. House Bill 1535 would take that exemption off the books.

CLARION LEDGER – #MSLEG: Licensure requirements could change to combat teacher shortage

Changing admission requirements for the state’s schools of education, retiring student loans and funding mentorship opportunities for veteran teachers are among the education proposals advancing to the full Senate.

The measures passed by the Senate Education Committee on Wednesday are part of an effort to find and fund solutions for the state’s teacher shortage.

Five years ago, Mississippi enacted a law mandating entrants to the state’s teacher colleges make a 21 on the ACT or a passing score on a standardized teacher test called the Praxis Core.



A proposal by Senate Education Committee Chairman Gray Tollison, R-Oxford, adds another option to those guidelines.
