Special Session May Target IHL Bonds

The buzz around the state Capitol is that a special legislative session may come in the middle of October. That was relayed by state Rep. Greg Snowden Monday at the Council of Governments meeting in Meridian.

However, Snowden said it's not currently expected to deal with Medicaid.

"I know there are some community college and university bond bills that were likely to have passed in the regular session, but things kind of came apart and they didn't get taken up. They'll probably be put back on," Snowden said. "There are several important economic development projects that are perhaps being added. This special session is no different from any other special session, which means the governor would have the authority to add whichever bond bills he thought should be considered."

Snowden said a special session is rumored, but has not been made official.
