JACKSON — Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves today unveiled a legislative agenda that focused on fiscal management, education reform and strengthening laws that protect Mississippi’s children.

“Through eliminating government waste, responsible spending and new, innovative approaches to education and protecting our families, Mississippi will be prepared to emerge from this national economic slowdown even stronger than before,” Reeves said.

Highlights of Reeves’ agenda include:

• Improve education efforts by passing a charter school law giving parents a choice in their child’s education and combining school districts under conservatorship in Sunflower County
