Special BP session would be bad for Coast, Reeves said

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said a special session to discuss spending $110 million in BP settlement money is a bad idea for the Coast.

Some Coast lawmakers have been asking Gov. Phil Bryant for such a session and the governor has said it is a possibility.

He said keeping “the vast majority” of the BP spending on the Coast, which he supports, is tough enough in a regular session.
