Tony Greer to head legislative budget office

When the 2017 legislative session begins in January, there will be a new key player in the budget making process: former Hinds County supervisor and current Madison County administrator Tony Greer.

The move comes after Legislative Budget Office director Debbie Rubisoff notified Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and House Speaker Philip Gunn, who co-chair the committee, of her retirement in early October.

A Mississippi Today reporter overheard legislative budget leaders congratulating Greer Wednesday at the Capitol. The committee will announce the appointment to LBO staff this afternoon.
