Today’s meeting is the third gathering of the Governor’s Tax Study
Commission, chaired by businessman Leland Speed. In addition to hearing
from tax experts and featured speakers, members of the Commission will
also listen to citizens and groups who have reserved time to speak
publicly on the state’s tax structure. The Commission will also be

In January, Governor Barbour announced the formation of a
public-private commission developed to study Mississippi’s tax code
and recommend reforms. The Tax Study Commission is required to present
its finding and recommendations to the Governor, the Legislature, and
the public on August 31, 2008.
