LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Government spending and its impact on taxpayers will be at the top of the list of priorities in the upcoming state legislative session in January, according to Republican Speaker of the House Philip Gunn.
He says it will all be about properly investing the taxpayer's money.
"How are we investing those dollars, what kind of return are we getting," said Gunn. "Are we putting money into programs that work and produce a better quality of life or are we spending money on things that are not really giving us the return that we thought they would and we're going to take a hard look at that," he said.
Gunn was in Laurel Thursday as part of a statewide listening tour.
