Video: Work Grinding to a Halt in State House of Representatives
JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) – Very little debate in the Mississippi legislature on Wednesday, as some Democrats protest how the Republican leadership is handling the agenda.
A few members had bills read aloud in the House and the Senate.
House Democrats used a similar filibuster technique last month.
Another battle brewing at the state Capitol is a bill that would create a regional board for the Jackson airport, which is actually located in Rankin County.
The House adjourned early in the afternoon but the Senate remained in session for a longer period of time.
