JACKSON — State Auditor Stacey Pickering is applauding a new law that he says will help fight government corruption.
Gov. Bryant approved Senate Bill 2625 and it is now law with an effective date of July 1.
In a release, Pickering’s office wrote: “Under this important anti-corruption legislation, an individual who has been convicted or pled guilty to stealing public funds in the state of Mississippi may not be employed by the state or any county, municipality or any other political subdivision.
On numerous occasions, officials have stolen from one government agency only to then be employed by another agency at a later time. This will help ensure that that does not happen.”
