Bryant creating legislative agenda

In a few weeks he’ll become the most powerful political figure in Mississippi and when the gavel sounds for the upcoming legislative session, governor-elect Phil Bryant wants his policy agenda to be ready.

“Vision without action is just a hallucination,” said Bryant.

Putting the pieces of his political puzzle together Bryant formed 11 policy committees, and appointed chairmen, ranging from education and health care to public safety and energy. Bryant then tapped more than 200 leaders from those same fields to have one big discussion.

“We want to have diversity. We want to have people who have been on the ground,” said Bryant.
