JACKSON — The state Senate today confirmed businessman Leland Speed for his second turn as executive director of the Mississippi Development Authority.

Speed held the top job at MDA from January 2004 until he stepped down in November 2006. He was succeeded by Gray Swoope.

Swoope was MDA director until last month, when he left for a similar economic development job in Florida.

Speed is expected to serve for the rest of Republican Gov. Haley Barbour’s second term, which ends next January.
