Statement from Secretary Hosemann on Federal Order on Legislative Redistricting

“It has always been my position the Mississippi Legislature should be able to redistrict itself and not the Federal Courts.

Today, the Federal Court upheld our position and our Constitution. There will be no costly special election and the elected Legislative Representatives will serve their full four year terms.

Following the law is always a victory for every citizen.”
