JACKSON, MS (WDAM) - Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant is preparing to discuss his legislative plans for 2018 on Tuesday afternoon.

During Bryant's 2017 speech, he urged legislators that they should consider the creation of a state lottery.

This could be one of the issues addressed as Mississippi is one of six states without a lottery. Mississippi lawmakers are seeking new sources of state revenue, and a state lottery could be one of them.

Governor Bryant will deliver this speech today at 5 p.m at the Capitol.

WDAM will be streaming this event live on our website and mobile app.
