Bryant Makes Another Round of Budget Cuts

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says he’s making budget cuts of $25 million and will take $10 million out of the state’s rainy day fund.

This is the round of cuts to the $6 billion state budget since fiscal 2016 started last July, because state revenues are falling short in a sluggish economy.

Bryant says he is making across-the-board cuts to of less than one-half of 1 percent to budgets of most agencies Wednesday.
