Key Democrat hopes to include bonds in special session

The state Senate’s minority leader said Wednesday he hopes Gov. Phil Bryant allows the Legislature to consider a bond bill in the upcoming special session.

Via social media, the Republican governor announced late Tuesday he would call a special session on June 5 to take up the three budget bills that died during the 2017 regular session that ended in late March.

Bryant is yet to issue the official proclamation, and he has yet to release the call (agenda) for the special session.

Bill Stone, D-Holly Springs, said he’s hoping to have some type of bond bill included among the other items that need to be taken care of during the session.
