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.
