Governor sets $51 million more in Mississippi budget cuts - Jeff Amy, Associated Press

Gov. Phil Bryant on Thursday ordered another $51 million in cuts from Mississippi's $6.4 billion budget, as state revenues continue to lag. "It has become clear that revenue is not adequate to support budgeted expenses for the current fiscal year," the Republican wrote in a letter to Department of Finance and Administration Executive Director Laura Jackson, ordering the cuts. In September, Bryant sliced $57 million to make up for an accounting error during legislative budget writing. http://www.dailyprogress.com/governor-sets-million-more-in-mississippi-budget-cuts/article_a27c24f0-849f-500f-b7e9-309c2ee56acf.html
