Bill Proposal Deadline Set

Our deadline to meet about drafting legislation has been moved up to next Wednesday, three weeks earlier than the previous deadline. So far, I've put two in the pipeline, with possibly another 9 to submit over the next week. So- this will be a busy rest of the week.

Three of my committees will commence tomorrow. Transporation, Education and Universities and Colleges will all have their first meeting tomorrow afternoon.

Yesterday, the Hattiesburg delegation met with representatives from the Mississippi Highway Patrol about making our driver's license station more efficient and less time-consuming for citizens. It was good information, and there were a number of different ideas discussed; we'll see what comes of it. I'm learning the obstacle to nearly every new idea is finding the money to carry it out.
