Accountability, Efficiency, Transparency

Bill Number Bill Description Bill Status
HB 260
Neutral
'Mississippi Joint Municipal Law Enforcement Act'; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill proposes to join municipal police departments within the same county. The sheriff already has power over the county. This could create additional tax burdens on one municipality to serve the interests of the other.
HB 273
Neutral
Community hospitals; authorize board of trustees members to participate in health insurance plan. Alive
Analysis: This bill allows for the board of trustees to participate in healthcare plans offered to employees of the hospital. This raises costs as previous language had offered medical benefit plans which were supposed to be cost neutral. Specifically, "so that no expenditure of hospital funds is required," was struck from the text.
HB 323
Bad Policy
Insurance companies; require to establish an internal audit function. Alive
Analysis: This bill expands the scope of government by adding additional regulations. The state should seek to undo governments regulations whenever possible. When consumers decide which businesses will succeed or fail, the resulting profit motive will greatly reduce bad business practices and reward those who put the interest of their customers first.

HB 344
Bad Policy
Proclamation of a local emergency; allow president of county board of supervisors to declare. Dead
Analysis: This bill seeks to increase the power of the president of a county board of supervisors to declare an emergency in cases of natural disaster or invasion. The mayor or governing body of a municipality, the governing body of a county, and the Governor of Mississippi already have this power. Citizens should be encouraged to be self reliant, prepared, and practice mutual aid. Dependence on the state will weaken residents ability provide help.
HB 444
Bad Policy
Windstorm Underwriting Association; authorize to levy recoupable and nonrecoupable assessments. Alive
Analysis: This bill seeks to fund the MS Windstorm Underwriting Association by allowing the Association to levy fees in the form of Recoupable and Nonrecoupable Assessments. Also, the Replacement Cost valuation for property is added to the definition of Essential Property Insurance along side Actual Cash Value. Additionally, $3,000,000 is to be used for the Rural Fire Truck Fund. While this bill would establish a Minimum Reserve for the salaries and other necessary expenses, it implies that higher payments are necessary for insured consumers. The state should seek to reduce costly taxes and regulations.
HB 613
Good Policy

Analysis: This bill exempts sensitive information such as source codes and security policies from the MS Public Records Act of 1983.

HB 819
Neutral
Uniform Athlete Agents Act; revise to conform to 2015 amended act adopted by UCC. Dead
Analysis: This bill seeks to regulate the activity of students who plays sports. The state should focus on education by enforcing contracts and rights, not limit contracts and willing business opportunities through licensing and regulations
HB 898
Good Policy
Agency Accountability Review Act of 2019; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill increases government transparency for State agencies by requiring the Mississippi Joint Committee on Performance Evaluation and Expenditure Review (PEER) to conduct a thorough and regular review of agencies to determine whether they are still relevant and fulfilling a necessary function of government.

HB 1258
Neutral
Department of Marine Resources Enforcement Officers' Reserve Unit; revise provisions regulating. Dead
Analysis: This bill changes the language to say that the Marine Resources Enforcement Officers Reserve Unit may serve without pay instead of stating that they will serve without pay. If pay is an issue for retention, the state should seek to decrease taxes and regulations driving up costs, not add additional expenditures to tax payers.
HB 1264
Neutral
Department of Marine Resources; authorize unmarked vehicle for law enforcement activities in certain situations. Dead
Analysis: This bill allows for the Department of Revenue and the Department of Marine Resources to apply to the governor for the use of unmarked vehicles if it will hinder an official investigation.
HB 1269
Good Policy

HB 1411
Bad Policy
Pat Harrison Waterway District; authorize additional counties to join. Dead
Analysis: This bill expands the power of the Pat Harrison Waterway District over the residents of any county that decides to join the district. Expansion leaves concerns for property rights in regard to eminent domain and condemnation of private property.
HB 1477
Bad Policy
Cemeteries; authorize counties and municipalities to expend funds to maintain abandoned nonprofit cemeteries. Alive
Analysis: This bill seeks to allow counties and municipalities to clean and maintain private nonprofit cemeteries. The state should seek to decrease the tax burdens on citizens at all levels of government instead of redistributing private costs to the tax payer.
HB 1540
Good Policy
Contracts for collection of city/county solid wastes; authorize to extend without advertising for proposals under certain circumstances. Alive
Analysis: The board of supervisors and/or municipal governing body may have the option to extend the contract by mutual consent of the parties in one-year increments up to 4 additional years without advertising for proposals, as long as rate adjustments remain consistent with the existing contract and the total term of the contract does not exceed 10 years.
