Mississippi lawmakers will be busy this week trying to meet a key deadline for advancing legislation.

Some of the bills up for discussion include early voting, more charter schools and Medicaid reform.

If bills aren't reported out of committees in the chamber they originated in by
Feb.3, they will die this session.

Hundreds of bills have been filed in the 90-day regular legislative session that began earlier this month and ends in April.

In the House, leaders want to move an early voting bill out of committee and onto the floor for discussion. The bill would allow Mississippians to head to the polls 15 days before an election.
