AP – Bryant positioning for governor run

Bryant has plans to take his opposition to the federal law a step further during the 2011 session.

He’s sent a letter to Senate Insurance Committee Chairman Eugene “Buck” Clarke, R-Hollandale, asking him to recommend a bill authorizing the state “to protect our citizens by all lawful means from the implementation of the Obama health care plan.”

“I believe the Mississippi Legislature must confront this threat to our liberty,” Bryant wrote. “Indeed, as elected officials, you and I took oaths before God to faithfully support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the state of Mississippi.”
