Mississippi school land revenue tops $89 million

Revenue generated from 16th Section land across the State reached record levels in 2012 — approximately $89,223,643 — all of which goes directly to the education of our children.

“This $89 million will help alleviate some of the financial headaches faced by our school districts today. In times of serious cutbacks and strict budgets, we were able to increase revenue generated on these public lands to benefit education,” said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.
