There could be some good news ahead for Mississippi in terms of the economic outlook.
House Appropriations Committee chairman, Johnny Stringer, said Mississippi is now poised for a turnaround.
"Well, we we're down $26 million for the month of July, but I feel like things will pick up," said Stringer. "The stimulus package is starting to kick in and I think we'll level out before the end of the year."
So far, Stringer says almost a half billion dollars in federal stimulus funds have come to Mississippi for various projects.
