CLARION LEDGER – House GOP Caucus re-ups on Philip Gunn as Speaker. White expected to serve as ProTem

In a proforma vote, the state House Republican Caucus on Thursday unanimously chose Rep. Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, as speaker for another four years.



The official House vote on Gunn’s continued speakership will be in January when the Legislature convenes, but with the GOP House Caucus maintaining a supermajority in that chamber after Tuesday’s election, his reelection is a foregone conclusion.

The House is also expected to ratify Gunn’s choice of Rep. Jason White, R-West, as speaker pro tem, the second-ranking House leadership position. He will replace Rep. Greg Sowden, R-Meridian, who lost in his District 83 reelection bid this year. White has been a top lieutenant on Gunn’s leadership team and has served as chairman of the powerful Rules Committee.

The Mississippi State Board of Education decided that further study is needed before a decision can be made regarding the potential elimination of the U.S. History end-of-course exam.

The SBE directed the Mississippi Department of Education to work with the Accountability Task force. They will research the impact that eliminating the U.S. History assessment would have on the statewide accountability system without changing the cut scores.



The Accountability Task Force is scheduled to meet on December 5, 2019.
