Lt. gov. reveals session priorities

The state House today could consider legislation that would add changes to the reporting of suspected child sex abuse and place additional restrictions on abortion providers.

Dubbed the “Child Protection Act,” the proposal is among several priorities Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves identified in his legislative agenda on Wednesday, so if it passes the House it is likely to see strong support in the Senate, as well.
