WLOX – State senators answer questions at annual pre-Legislative briefing

State senators answer questions at annual Pre-Legislative BriefingParticipants also asked what the election of Tate Reeves as governor will mean to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

“Governor-Elect Reeves has been a friend to the coast,” said Senator Brice Wiggins, re-elected to Mississippi Senate District 52. “He stood up for us on the BP. As I said here on the panel, I’ve worked with him on the Senate for the last eight years. I know where his heart it. It’s gonna be very good for us on the coast, but we need to keep the momentum going. We can’t take those things for granted. The governor is elected statewide. He has constituencies all over the state, not just the bottom three counties. We need to be cognizant of that, but remember that we are that important.”

Also taking center stage were questions about where the money received from the new Mississippi Lottery will go.

“With the new state lottery, we’re gonna see a lot of new money and new revenue coming in to the state. That has been allocated,” said Senator-Elect Jeremy England of Mississippi Senate District 51. “The purpose for having the lottery was to make sure that we’re keeping up with infrastructure and putting money into our roads and bridges, and we want to make sure that’s what we do. We need to carry on with that and don’t want to see these funds get diverted.”
