Bryant Chooses Corporate Tax Cuts over MS School Children

Posted 5/13/2016

 

This afternoon, Governor Bryant chose yet another huge tax break for big business over adequate funding for public schools, mental health, and other vital state services.

Despite legislative leaders having just announced that they passed an unbalanced budget - in violation of the state constitution - and despite being unable to pay the state's bills, requiring deep cuts to critical state services, Gov. Bryant stripped millions more from state coffers with the stroke of a pen when he signed SB 2858 late on this Friday afternoon. It is hard to imagine how anyone could consider this to be conservative, responsible governance.
