Lawmakers facing first major deadline for filing bills

JACKSON — Members of the Mississippi House and Senate are facing their first major deadline of year.

Today is the final day for lawmakers to file general bills or constitutional amendments that will be considered during their four-month session.

The session started in early January and ends in early May.

Bills are already filed on several big issues, including charter schools and immigration.

Committees now have until March 6 to act on general bills or constitutional amendments filed in each chamber. The House committees will consider House bills, and the Senate committees will consider Senate bills. The surviving proposals will move on for debate in the full chamber.

There are later deadlines to file and pass money bills.
