Jackson, Mississippi Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn says he'll travel the state this fall to gather ideas for the 2014 legislative session.

The Clinton Republican said Friday that he's looking for solutions to the state's problems. Gunn has supported charter schools and has said frequently during the past year that he opposes Medicaid expansion.

He conducted a similar listening tour last year.

Gunn plans to hold meetings Oct. 7 in Clinton, Clarksdale and Olive Branch; Oct. 8 in Oxford, Corinth and Starkville; Oct. 9 in Vicksburg and Natchez; and Oct. 10 in Laurel and Pascagoula.

Each meeting is scheduled to last an hour, and Gunn says they'll be nonpartisan.

The 2014 legislative session runs from early January to early April.
