State Lawmakers vote “yes” at special session

JACKSON, MS (WLBT)- Lawmakers tackled two major issues today during the special session at the state capitol today.

One item on Governor Haley Barbour’s agenda was a major economic development project to make biofuel in Mississippi. The other was a statewide ban on the synthetic marijuana known as spice.

Lawmakers voted yes on both of these at the capitol on Friday after several meetings in the chambers and others outside in committee meetings.
