SEC Primary Bill Unanimously Passes Mississippi House, Heads Back to Senate

The Mississippi state House passed SB 2531 by a 117-0 vote on Tuesday, March 10. The bill that originated in the state Senate now heads back there after the state House made a small and likely uncontroversial amendment to the Senate-passed version.

The amendment struck a provision calling for the changes in the legislation to expire. The change would be permanent if the bill in its newly amended form passed the state Senate and is signed into law. The first time around, SB 2531 passed the Senate 40-10.
