Bad weather could change Bryant’s inaugural Today

Republican Phil Bryant will be inaugurated as Mississippi’s 64th governor at noon Tuesday.

Weather will determine whether he takes his oath of office outside on the Capitol steps or inside the state House chamber.

Bryant’s staff said Monday that he will take the oath outside unless the weather deteriorates by Tuesday morning. Seating is limited in the House chamber, and Bryant spokesman Mick Bullock said several TVs will be set up in the Capitol if the inauguration is held inside.
