Five legislators met last week on the Southern Miss campus to discuss some of the issues facing law makers in this legislative session. No surprise that funding education was on the agenda. We will continue to follow the topic of education through this session to see how it is addressed.
Also discussed was a bill focusing on reforming our municipal election laws. Representative Toby Barker is introducing legislation that he thinks will reduce confusion and preserves the integrity of the individual vote. I think we can all agree that we do not want a repeat of this past year's election issues in our future. We need legislation that will clarify the process and reduce human error.
