Think the state is taking too much of your hard-earned money? Or too little?

A study commission appointed by Gov. Haley Barbour is holding a hearing Monday to gather public comments about how to change Mississippi’s tax structure.

The commission is expected to make recommendations to Barbour by this fall.

The Republican governor has said he wants to see a net decrease in taxes by the time his second term ends in January 2012. Legislators would have to approve any changes.
