Gov. Phil Bryant blocking $3 million for Mississippi Grammy Museum

JACKSON, Mississippi —
Gov. Phil Bryant has blocked lawmakers’ attempt to send $3 million from the Mississippi Development Authority budget to the proposed Grammy museum in Cleveland.

House and Senate Appropriations Committee chairmen sent a May 25 letter to the authority saying legislators intended for MDA to give $3 million to the museum.

Such letters, called budget notes by Capitol insiders, have been an accepted though infrequent practice in past years.
