The Republican leadership of the Mississippi Legislature and Gov. Phil Bryant felt good about the accomplishments of the 2013 session, which ended Thursday.
“All in all, I think this is an A session,” Bryant said Thursday outside his Capitol office after seeing the Legislature pass many education proposals he had endorsed, such as charter schools, enhanced teacher standards and a literacy-improvement effort in the early grades.
The Republican governor praised the leadership of Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, who presides over the Senate, and House Speaker Philip Gunn for a legislative session he labeled “transformative.”
Then there was Medicaid.
