Governor nixes $50K to say wild hogs are dangerous

Mississippi does not need to spend $50,000 on a public relations campaign to tell people that wild hogs are dangerous, Republican Gov. Phil Bryant said this week in blocking part of a budget bill.

He vetoed that bit of spending Senate Bill 3015, saying the group designated to receive the money, Mississippi State Cooperative Extension Service, didn’t even request it.
