Governor signs a slew of energy bills

Gov. Phil Bryant today signed into law numerous energy bills passed by the Legislature this session.

They include tax breaks for energy production and consumption by manufacturers, stricter efficiency regulations on commercial and government buildings and incentives for government fleets to use alternative fuels.

In a written statement, Bryant said: “This ‘Energy Works’ legislation speaks to our state’s strong footprint in the energy sector and our continued commitment to make Mississippi the place to invest in energy. My administration will work overtime to land major energy-related projects and to make sure our energy partners who are here have the tools and the support to be successful and to expand.”
