Mississippi governor’s budget has free community college

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is recommending that the state spend $7 million in the coming year to provide free community college for an unspecified number of students.

The Republican says it would help people learn job skills that could lead to good wages. Bryant suggested a similar, but smaller, scholarship program three years ago and legislators did not fund it.
