Reeves Outlines Accomplishments in State of the State
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves gave his State of the State address Monday, calling the year 2022 one of the state’s best. He touted improved high school graduation rates, low unemployment and vigorous economic development that help great a 4-billion-dollar surplus in the state budget, as signs Mississippi is moving in the right direction. Reeves also called on the republican controlled legislature to limit medicaid expansion and eliminate the state’s income tax. Some lawmakers opposed to the elimination of the state income tax have expressed concerns over how that would impact funding for health care, education and other state programs. Reeves criticized Liberal democrats on the transgender issue saying “radical liberals” are threatening society by allowing children to choose their own pronouns. He went on to praise the U.S. Supreme Court for using a Mississippi case last summer to overturn Roe v. Wade.
