Rep. Andy Gipson: 2015 Legislature tackles public safety issues

As the 2015 regular session of the Legislature is now officially closed and in the rearview mirror, the focus for many people seems to have been on a couple of bills: eliminating inspection stickers and enacting penalties for texting and driving. In fact, the 2015 Legislature took action on a number of major policy issues. As is the case every year, most bills introduced did not survive the grueling session. But the 2015 legislative process yielded a number of meaningful pieces of legislation that should further enhance public safety in Mississippi.
