June Update

BIPEC Business Champion

The Mississippi Business and Industry Political Education Committee (BIPEC), which advances free enterprise and promotes a strong business community, recently released its latest legislative report card. The report card recognizes legislative “Business & Jobs Champions” who support economic growth, job development, and business-related issues during the legislative session. I am pleased to announce I received the highest rating possible – an “A.”


Purvis High School

I had the privilege of speaking to the senior class at Purvis High School a couple weeks ago, and it was a great experience. These students are the future of our state, and after speaking with them, I am optimistic about where our state is headed. Keep up the great work, and congratulations on your graduation


Inflation

Summer has begun – school is out, the days are longer, the temperature is rising, and travel is increasing. Yet, with gas prices hitting record highs seemingly every day, inflation running wild, and supply chain issues continuing, it’s easy to see why a lot of working Americans are nervous about their financial future. While many of the issues we are facing have causes beyond our control, several of them have been created – or worsened – by irresponsible governing on the federal level. Mississippi’s Legislature only appropriates money that we have. We operate with a fundamental belief that all the money government spends is first taken from taxpayers who work hard to earn that money. As both your state Senator and the Vice Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, I commit to using Mississippi’s tax dollars wisely and in a way that provides the biggest benefit to our people. That’s why I was excited to recently attend a National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) meeting for state fiscal policy where we discussed having more responsible state government, including ways to be more effective with taxpayer dollars and holding state agencies accountable.
