House passes bill to name Pascagoula beach `Buffett Beach’

Mississippi legislators are working to name a Gulf Coast beach for the native son who wrote and sang “Margaritaville.”

Representatives voted 119-1 on Monday to pass House Bill 886, which would designate a sandy stretch in Pascagoula as Buffett Beach.


YP NOTE: The lone dissenting vote on the bill was from Desoto County legislator Dana Criswell, a former Jackson County coast resident.
