Governor sets $51 million more in Mississippi budget cuts
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Gov. Phil Bryant on Thursday ordered another $51 million in cuts from Mississippi’s $6.4 billion budget, as state revenues continue to lag.
“It has become clear that revenue is not adequate to support budgeted expenses for the current fiscal year,” the Republican wrote in a letter to Department of Finance and Administration Executive Director Laura Jackson, ordering the cuts.
In September, Bryant sliced $57 million to make up for an accounting error during legislative budget writing.
