Gunn expects House to pass charter legislation
With the Mississippi House now having its first GOP majority in 136 years, conservatives have been able to accomplish some of their goals, including passing a law that requires the Democratic attorney general to disclose more information about private attorneys who do contract work on behalf of the state, House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, told a Neshoba County Fair crowd.
Gunn also said he expects the House to eventually pass legislation to expand charter schools, which are supposed to offer more flexibility in curriculum and operations. The House and Republican-controlled Senate couldn’t agree on a charter bill this year.
