TO THE MISSISSIPPI HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:

 

GOVERNORíS VETO MESSAGE FOR HOUSE BILL 602

 

I am returning House Bill Number 602:"AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 57‑1‑303, MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972, TO EXTEND THE DATE OF REPEAL ON THE PROVISION OF LAW THAT REGULATES THE MANNER IN WHICH THE MISSISSIPPI DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY MAY USE CERTAIN MONIES IN THE "LOCAL GOVERNMENTS CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS REVOLVING LOAN FUND"; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES" without my approval, and assign the following reasons for my veto.

 

Today, I signed into law Senate Bill 2508, which is identical to House Bill 602.Therefore, there is no need for House Bill 602.
