State Profile

Mississippi lawmakers are considering a plan to increase funding for infrastructure by about $150M starting in July, allocating $50M in bonds for bridges; $25M for county projects and $25M for municipal projects. The legislation would divert between $50M and $70M online sales tax revenue collected by the state from sellers like Amazon and other retailers, to be earmarked specifically for road and infrastructure improvements and repairs.
