Gov. Bryant signs business bills

With his signature, Governor Phil Bryant inked four pieces of legislation into law Monday, all of them part of his Mississippi Works Agenda.

“This was the most job friendly, business friendly legislative session in modern Mississippi history,” said Bryant.

First to get the approval of the governor was the Health Care Industry Zone Act, aimed at expanding the state’s healthcare economy and improving access to it. The new law creates health care zones throughout the state and provides tax incentives for health care businesses that create new, permanent jobs.

“I’m very proud of that innovative piece of legislation. I think it’s going to create thousands of jobs in the healthcare industry,” said Bryant.
