Bryant: Special session only after consensus on education

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says he will call a special legislative session on education funding only after lawmakers reach broad agreement on the main points of a proposal.

Top Republicans in the House and Senate say they want to rewrite the school funding formula, but they haven’t revealed a plan.

House Speaker Philip Gunn says legislators won’t stick to regular-session budget deadlines to deal with education spending.
