ABSTRACT
The article reports that Mississippi Treasurer Tate Reeves said that he is "troubled" by the $456 million bond bill passed by the Legislature on November. 22 and signed into law by Governor Haley Barbour the day before Thanksgiving. The Legislature turned a $108 million jobs-related bond bill into a $456 million package, Reeves says in a press release. That package is going to cost taxpayers clost5 to a billion dollars over the next several decades. Barbour, a fellow Republican, called lawmakers into a special session Nov. 8 to seek passage of a $108 million bond bill for economic development projects. The bill passed the Senate on opening day, but stalled in a House committee for two weeks.
