Week 12 Mississippi
Legislative Overview
 
This was the twelfth week of the 2021 Legislative Session. At this point in the session, a majority of bills have either been sent to the Governor to be signed or are being discussed in conference. Conference on a bill occurs when further discussion is needed to reach the best solution. A conference consists of three Representatives and three Senators who work together to finalize a bill. Most of the bills in conference at this point in the session deal with the state budget.Once a bill is out of conference, it must go to both the House and Senate for a vote before being sent to the Governor. 

Along with holding conferences all week, the House did meet to discuss and pass local and private bills, suffrage bills, and resolutions. The House also brought up and voted on several conference reports that have already been filed.

With only a few days left in the 2021 session, legislators remained in Jackson to work through the weekend. The deadline for bills to come out of conference and pass in both houses occurs this week. Any bills that are passed will then be sent to the Governor to be signed into law.
