Social Hosting bill sent to governor

After weeks of debate between Mississippi’s lawmakers, House Bill 1292 is on its way to the governor.

The Social Hosting bill was sent to Gov. Phil Bryant on Monday. Bryant has until April 11 to sign and return it to the state capitol.

The bill changes the imprisonment time for anyone found guilty of providing minors alcohol to no more than six months in a county jail, an increase from the previous 90 days.
