Major Funding Approved for Transportation

Legislation a Key Step in Addressing Mississippi Infrastructure Needs

The Mississippi Legislature took a big step forward in addressing Mississippi's transportation infrastructure with the passage of two key bills that will put more than $200 million annually into preserving the state's most valuable asset - our infrastructure.

Special thanks to the leadership of Governor Phil Bryant, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves and Speaker Philip Gunn in the passage of the Mississippi Infrastructure Modernization Act and legislation to create a lottery, from which certain funds will be dedicated to transportation. Providing additional transportation funding has been a major priority since the completion of a report by the Blueprint Mississippi Transportation Task Force, chaired by Joe F. Sanderson, Jr. of Sanderson Farms, Inc.

The task force's study underscored the need for focusing on maintenance of roadways and the repair and replacement of bridges at the state and local level.
