Small decrease expected for Mississippi budget next year

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi is on track to have a slightly smaller budget in the coming year, reflecting caution about the state economy.

Top lawmakers met Wednesday and set an estimate that the state will have $5.6 billion available to spend during fiscal 2019, which begins July 1.

That is $1.5 million less than the estimate for the current year.
