The Mississippi State Legislature convened for the 2021 Regular Legislative Session today.

Mississippi’s Constitution states this session will be 90 days. As of today, the Legislature is expected to adjourn Sine Die by Saturday, April 4. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this timetable could change if Legislative leadership decides to postpone the session for health and safety reasons.

Leadership in both chambers have stated they plan to place an emphasis on COVID-19 response, Medicaid, teacher pay and workforce development during the session.

“MFBF staff and I are looking forward to begin working with the Legislature this year on issues set forth by our membership,” Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation President Mike McCormick said. “As the session unfolds, we plan to keep our members updated on things that could impact them.”
