*Each day's House Business is provided in the hyperlinks below. Monday, January 25th http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/2016/pdf/daily_action/01252016.xml I headed down to Jackson, where we convened, took care of the day’s business, and then adjourned. I went to Legislative Services, and spoke to one of the lawyers about a couple of my bills. There has been much talk about shortening the session this year by 21 days. On a side note, the state saves $34,000 a day when the legislature doesn’t meet. If we do shave those days off, apart from saving the state a lot of money, it would move the cut off to get a bill in the pipeline to this Tuesday. I told him that I would get back to him tomorr

It was a wonderful time, and beautiful moment of community between brothers and sisters in Christ. I was given the honor of praying for our county, state, and country, and for racial reconciliation. The event ended with the group locking arm and arm and heading out to walk the newly named Martin Luther King Drive

My wife Corey had also headed down and we packed up and went to the Governor’s Legislative Reception at the Old Capital. It was an amazing atmosphere with fantastic food, complete with a string quartet playing in the atrium. There were many dignitaries, representatives, and senators in attendance. My wife and I had the opportunity to talk with the Governor and his wife, and wish them well with the inauguration on Tuesday. From there we headed

*Each day's House Business is provided in the hyperlinks below. DAY 1, Sunday, January 3rd After much deliberation in the previous months, and after many number crunching sessions, I decided to purchase a used travel trailer to live in (as my home away from home) while serving down in Jackson. Hotel, apartment, room for rent, and cardboard box were some of the many options that I had. But with each of those options, except the last one, I would be spending almost my entire per diem and ultimately having nothing to show for it at the end of my term. Once all 7 of the Desoto County Reps arrived at the same decision, it became not only the most fiscally sound decision I felt that I could hav

INTRODUCTION TO MY WEEKLY BLOG Out campaigning with my son on a hot day in July, 2015. MY MOTIVATION: In reflection, 2015 has proven to be one of the most exciting, yet challenging years of my life. Since the days that I served as Student Body President some 30+ years ago at my High School, I have often dreamed about public service.
