House passes bill to help pay for Jackson infrastructure

The Mississippi House is advancing a bill that would spend an additional $20 million a year in state money for infrastructure improvements in central parts of Jackson.
The House voted 99-22 Wednesday for House Bill 1226 to create a Capitol Complex Improvement District. The measure moves to the Senate for more debate. Senators are considering a different proposal, Senate Bill 2893 .
A five-member board, not the city, would decide how to spend the money under the House bill.
