The article focuses on the Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and Treasurer Tate Reeves' efforts in balancing the state budget and reform government. The governor and the treasurer, both Republicans, plan to submit new reform measures to the Legislature, which convened on Tuesday for its annual 90-day session. The issue of greatest concern during the session would be the 2006 budget, which is expected to suffer a $300 million shortfall from using one-time sources of revenue for recurring programs, as well as a $300 million deficit largely in the state Medicaid program.
