Mississippi lawmakers finish their 2013 session

The House and Senate adjourned Thursday after finishing last-minute business, including confirmation of several nominees to lead agencies and serve on state regulatory boards.

Lawmakers approved most of a $5.5 billion budget for fiscal 2014. But, they will have to return for a special session before July 1 to keep the Medicaid program alive and to put money into it.
