Bill Number Bill Description Bill Status
HB 4
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; increase maximum number of package retailer's permits a person may own. Dead
Analysis: This bill increases the number of package retailer’s permits one individual may own from one to three. This effectively raises the maximum number of liquor stores that one individual may operate from one to three. Arbitrary government limits on the amount of liquor stores any individual may own are not good for the economy. An individual’s success in the market should be determined by the market alone, not by the government.
HB 23
Neutral
Mississippi Major Economic Impact Authority; revise certain authority concerning loan for certain economic development project. Alive
Analysis: This bill gives the Mississippi Major Economic Impact Authority the power to renegotiate payments of certain loans made to certain municipalities for projects covered specifically under the Mississippi Major Economic Impact Act. It also stipulates that any debt incurred by a municipality for projects under that act shall not be included in the calculation for that municipalities indebtedness.
HB 24
Neutral
Bonds; revise certain provisions regarding sale by political subdivisions and other instrumentalities. Alive
Analysis: This bill authorizes that sealed bids for bonds issued by any political subdivision (county, road district, school district, etc.) may be submitted in electronic format. It also stipulates that if a successful bidder for a government bond fails to submit payment in a timely manner the government authority may sell the bond.
HB 46
Neutral
Bonds; revise purposes for which bonds authorized for Town of Wesson may be used. Dead
Analysis: This bill included the construction of a new police station among the allowable uses for funds from the "2019 Town of Wesson Police Station Construction Fund".
HB 234
Neutral
Distinctive motor vehicle license tag; authorize issuance to Cold War veterans. Dead
Analysis:
HB 282
Good Policy
Golf carts and low-speed vehicles; allow municipalities to authorize operation on municipal streets. Dead
Analysis: This bill authorizes local municipalities to be the sole deciders on road permits for Golf carts and low-speed vehicles in their jurisdiction. Decentralization of authority on trivial matters such as permits for golf carts and other low-speed vehicles is prudent as local government is typically more equipped to handle these local issues.
HB 326
Good Policy
Cottage food operation; increase maximum annual gross sales to $35,000.00 and authorize to advertise over the Internet. Alive
Analysis: This bill raises the amount of gross sales a cottage food operation may generate before being subject to food establishment fees and authorizes them to advertise over the internet. Businesses should not be subject to arbitrary government sales caps, especially ones that incentivize making less money. Raising the cap from $20,000 to $35,000 is a step in the right direction, however, government caps on how successful a business is allowed to be before government retribution is levied denigrates the freedom of our market and effectively caps our economic potential.
HB 340
Not Rated
Sales tax; exempt sale of tangible personal property or services to Itawamba Crossroads Ranch, Inc. Dead
Analysis:
HB 363
Neutral
Motor vehicles; add exception for title and/or registration upon selling for wrecker and auto repair service businesses. Dead
Analysis: This bill allows an automotive repair service or wrecker service to sell a vehicle that is legal being held as merchandise regardless of whose name is on the title.
HB 379
Bad Policy
Mississippi Marketplace Facilitator Act of 2020; create. Alive
Analysis: This bill authorizes the state to tax, regulate and audit online "marketplace facilitators" (companies that facilitate the online buying and selling of personal property). It also includes a provision that allows this tax to be passed on to those who purchase items through the facilitator. This bill is an attempt by the state government to become involved in the growing online market of personal property. This state involvement in these online marketplaces will surely raise costs in this marketplace and make these online facilitators less inclined to operate with potential sellers/buyers in Mississippi.
HB 448
Neutral
Mississippi Veterans Cemetery Perpetual Care Fund; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill creates the Mississippi Veterans Cemetery Perpetual Care Fund. This new fund would be used for the administration, renovation, maintenance and operation of the Mississippi Veterans Cemeteries.
HB 565
Bad Policy
Bonds; authorize issuance for grants and loans to assist with acquisition of and improvements to North Oak Regional Medical Center in Senatobia. Dead
Analysis: This bill authorizes the issuance of bonds to fund the repair and renovation of the North Oak Regional Medical Center in Senatobia. While some bonds are better than others the state is no position to be incurring more debt through the issuance of new bonds.
HB 638
Good Policy
Ad valorem tax; revise certain provisions regarding when an application for change of property assessment may be made. Dead
Analysis: This bill provides a tax assessor with an opportunity to change, decrease or cancel an assessment due to any extenuating circumstances with the property being assessed. It also provides an avenue for the owner of the taxed property to make an application for a change in the assessment amount to the board of supervisors. This legislation offers a common-sense solution to property owners who feel that their ad valorem taxes are too high.
HB 639
Bad Policy
Manufactured and mobile homes; require certain notice to tax collector when relocated from another county. Dead
Analysis: This legislation requires that an owner of a manufactured or mobile home inform the county tax collector in the event that he or she moves the home from one county to another. Failure to do so would result in a fine. It is not the people's responsibility to do the government's record-keeping for them. A requirement to complete government paperwork for a simple move from one county to another under threat of fines is not conservative or liberty-minded.
HB 653
Neutral
Transportation funding; authorize public-private partnerships to include naming rights. Dead
Analysis:
HB 654
Good Policy
Beer and light wine; allow certain cities and towns with population of 1,000 or more to hold elections to permit the sale of. Alive
Analysis: This bill stipulates that any city or town having a population of more than one thousand people and located in a county that has no city or town with a population of more than two thousand five hundred people may hold a vote to determine the legality of the sale, transportation, possession and use of alcohol in their town or city. Every city and town in Mississippi should have the right to hold a vote in this subject, regardless of arbitrary requirements on population size. However, this bill does expand freedom for Mississippians living in those towns.
HB 679
Neutral
State Board of Health; extend repealer on authority to charge fees for services based on cost of service. Dead
Analysis:
HB 684
Neutral
Forest acreage tax; extend repealer on statute requiring counties to levy. Alive
Analysis: This bill extends the repeal of the forest acreage tax.
HB 697
Neutral
Ad valorem taxes; extend reverter on authority for late payment without penalty or interest when exemption was inadvertently extended. Alive
Analysis:
HB 741
Neutral
Use tax; revise certain provisions regarding funds distributed to municipalities/counties for road and bridge improvements. Dead
Analysis: This bill adds drainage improvements related to roads, streets and bridges to the list of improvements covered by the special state fund for infrastructure maintenance. The bill also specifies that municipalities are not authorized to use more than 75% of the funds granted from this special fund for the repayment of bonds issued or other debt incurred by the municipality.
HB 777
Neutral
Counselors; revise certain provisions of licensing laws. Alive
Analysis:
HB 858
Bad Policy
Alcohol; revise certain provisions regarding authority of Department of Revenue to dispose of seized alcohol. Alive
Analysis: This bill slightly increases the parameters under which law enforcement may dispose of alcoholic beverages and "raw materials" connected with the production of alcoholic beverages. The state should not be in the business of seizing property as it pertains to alcohol in the first place, and surely should not be wastefully disposing of these materials. At the very least the state should sell this property at a profit and use the newly acquired funds to lessen the burden of the taxpayer.
HB 859
Neutral
Taxation; amend certain sections of law to make interest rates for various unpaid taxes consistent with rates provided in other sections of law. Alive
Analysis:
HB 861
Good Policy
Taxation; authorize Commissioner of Revenue to reduce a tax assessment based on additional information after order of Board of Tax Appeals. Alive
Analysis: This bill provides a 60 day window to taxpayers who feel they overpaid on taxes during which they can submit information and documentation showing their overpayment in the pursuit of a tax reduction. This will help keep Mississippians from overpaying on their taxes and keep money that they shouldn't owe in their pockets.
HB 862
Neutral
Ad valorem tax; revise penalty for failure of public service corporations to render schedules of property to Department of Revenue for assessment purposes. Dead
Analysis:
HB 863
Neutral
Ad valorem tax; revise certain provisions relating to assessment of public service corporations. Alive
Analysis:
HB 865
Neutral
Sales tax; revise provisions regarding denial/revocation of permit due to unpaid taxes. Alive
Analysis:
HB 866
Neutral
Fuel and lubricating oil taxes; remove bond limit and class distinctions for certain distributors, require electronic filing of returns. Alive
Analysis:
HB 869
Neutral
Motor vehicle title; change vehicle age from 10 to 20 years for odometer disclosure exemption. Alive
Analysis: As it stands, in the event of a sale of a vehicle aged 10 years or under, the seller must disclose the exact mileage of the vehicle. This bill raises that threshold to 20 years or younger. As a result, all vehicles sold in Mississippi that are 20 years or younger must come included with the exact mileage information. This change in law reflects the current federal law on the matter.
HB 977
Neutral
Oil and gas severance; revise date by taxes are due. Alive
Analysis:
HB 983
Bad Policy
Mississippi Board of Nursing;authorize to collect certain costs and establish procedure for collection. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1017
Not Rated
2018 Transportation and Infrastructure Improvements Fund; revise purposes for which City of Bruce may use funds received from. Dead
Analysis: This bill widens the parameters under which the city if Bruce may use funds from the 2018 Transportation and Infrastructure Improvements Fund to include the "Construction of walking and bicycle trails at the city's park."
HB 1027
Bad Policy
Emerging Crops Fund; increase maximum loan amount and total bonding authority under. Dead
Analysis: Under current state law The Mississippi Development Authority is authorized to give loans to agribusiness or greenhouse production horticulture enterprises up to the amount of $200,000. This bill increases that maximum loan amount to $250,000. Currently the MDA is also authorized to issue bonds to the Emerging Crops Fund in an amount up to $109 Million. This bill increases that maximum to $114 Million. The state of Mississippi is in no financial state to be increasing the maximum amount of loans the states can issue to any business or organization.
HB 1034
Neutral
Distinctive motor vehicle license tags; revise provisions regarding issuance of various veterans tags. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1086
Good Policy
Mississippi Liquor Distribution Corporation Law; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill privatizes to a small degree control over the import and sale of alcoholic beverages in the state. While the state should completely relinquish control over the alcoholic beverage market, this bill is a step in the right direction.
HB 1087
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; revise policy of the state regarding prohibition of possession of. Alive
Analysis: This bill diminishes the alcohol prohibition present in many places throughout the state. This bill makes the "possession" of alcohol specifically legal throughout the state. The transportation, sale and manufacture of alcohol is not brought up in this bill, but legalizing the possession of alcohol statewide is a huge step in the right direction and a victory for personal responsibility and liberty.
HB 1088
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; allow individuals to purchase wine from a winery and have the wine shipped to a package retailer in this state. Alive
Analysis: This bill allows wine to be shipped into the state by citizens for personal use so long as the wine is shipped to a licensed package retailer. As it stands, the Department of Revenue has the sole right to import and sell alcoholic beverages in the state. This bill is another step in the right direction in the pursuit of freedom from Mississippi's antiquated prohibition laws.
HB 1089
Neutral
Mississippi Development Authority; bring forward various sections relating to. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1090
Neutral
Tourism project sales tax incentive program; revise definition of 'tourism project,' extend authority of MDA to approve participants. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1091
Bad Policy
Mississippi Educational Talent Recruitment Act; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill creates a massive government expenditure aimed at incentivizing college graduates to work and live in Mississippi. The entire expenditure, equal to at least a 50% rebate (100% in some cases) on 5 years worth of state income taxes for every eligible Mississippian, however, is funded by borrowed money in the form of bonds. Under this program college graduates who agree to work and live in Mississippi for 5 years after graduation are promised either a 50% or full rebate on their state income taxes for those 5 years after their 5 year obligation. At first glance this appears to be a massive tax decrease but in reality the state of Mississippi is funding the entire program through the sale of bonds that do not spend existing state money but add to the state's already mounting debt. This bill is grossly irresponsible financially and will only serve to further saddle Mississippians young and old with piles of debt.
HB 1096
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; remove DOR from being wholesale distributor, authorize issuance of wine distributor permits. Dead
Analysis: This bill removes the power of the Department of Revenue to act as a wine distributor and authorizes holders of wine distributor permits to act in that capacity. This bill makes the market for wine slightly more free.
HB 1175
Neutral
Chancery court clerk fees; revise those charged for recording oil and gas assignments. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1227
Neutral
Ad valorem taxation; bring forward certain sections of law relating to determination of true value of property and assessments. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1332
Neutral
State land; revise fee for filing patent for conveyance of. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1381
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; revise definition of qualified resort area, revise provisions regarding certain permits and sales. Alive
Analysis: This bills adds institutions of higher learning and all land owned by them to the list of "qualified resort areas". This effectively legalizes the sale of alcohol in these areas. The bill also stipulates that this legalization remains in effect regardless of any votes that have occurred in the county in which these institutions exist that have outlawed the sale of alcohol. This is a victory for personal responsibility and liberty.
HB 1407
Bad Policy
Alternative nicotine products; regulate. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1427
Bad Policy
Alcoholic beverages; revise certain provisions regarding tasting or sampling events conducted by a holder of a package retailer's permit. Dead
Analysis: This bill increases the amount of alcohol that can be consumed at "tasting or sampling" events, stipulates that no one can be served at these events who is visibly intoxicated and places regulations on the manner in which these events can be advertised. Overall this bill does loosen one restriction on alcohol in the amount that can be consumed, but places unnecessary restrictions as well. This bill relies on the idea that adults in Mississippi are not responsible enough to decide for themselves how much alcohol it is appropriate to drink and that we need the morally superior state government to regulate our drinking habits. This is an antiquated way of thinking that threatens liberty.
HB 1438
Good Policy
Individual bond; require for public officers and employees handling or having the custody of public funds. Dead
Analysis: This bill requires a minimum bond amount of $25,000 for public officials and employees. These bonds serve as insurance for the state in the event of corruption on the part of these officials or employees. These bonds will protect the tax payer from the possible misuse of funds by these officials.
HB 1440
Neutral
Securities registration filings; revise certain provisions regarding fees. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1486
Bad Policy
Tobacco products; prohibit wholesalers from directly selling the products to retailers. Alive

Analysis:
HB 1730
Bad Policy
Bonds; authorize for various purposes. Alive
Analysis: This bill authorizes the issuance of $12,830,000 worth of bonds towards a host of uses throughout the state. This massive amount of borrowing will surely saddle future generations of Mississippians with an increasingly large amount of debt. The issuance of bonds in this manner is an irresponsible way to fund projects now that the state and its taxpayers simply cannot afford. While many of the projects that would be funded by these bonds are worthwhile undertakings, the state should seek to fund them through a comprehensive overview of spending; and should furthermore seek to spur the growth of capital in the state through a revision of the tax code and a repeal of burdensome regulations that stifle our economic growth.

Electric and hybrid motor vehicle taxes; exclude vehicles incapable of exceeding 35 miles per hour. Dead
Analysis: This bill repeals a tax levied on electric and hybrid motor vehicles that are incapable of exceeding 35mph and refunds users who were subject to these fines. This correctly identifies an over taxation of the people and retroactively works to right the wrongs of the tax.

Analysis: This bill allows an owner of a motor vehicle to receive a certificate of title without purchasing a tag so long as the owner stipulates stipulates that he/she does not intend to drive the vehicle on state highways. A tag is only required to be purchased before the owner operates the vehicle on state highways.

Analysis: This bill authorizes wrecker services to sell motor vehicles that are not registered to the business under certain circumstances. It also exempts these vehicles from ad valorem tax. These are vehicles that are seldom actually on the road, their taxation is an unnecessary burden on the wrecker service.

Alcoholic beverages; add facility to list of legislatively defined qualified resort areas. Alive
Analysis: This bill authorizes the sale of alcohol at a specific venue in Alcorn County. This bill illustrates wonderfully the hypocritical nature of government regulations on the sale of alcohol. If the state kept itself out of the personal decisions of it's citizens, a bill with such narrow and obviously self-serving parameters would never be necessary. However, this bill, through returning personal freedom to one small group of people, is a small victory for liberty and personal responsibility.

SB 2259
Good Policy
Bond counsel; require selection through a competitive request for proposals process. Dead
Analysis: This bill requires the State Bond Commission, the Mississippi Development Bank and the Mississippi Business Finance Corporation to abide by certain, more strict, parameters when awarding contracts for bond counsel. The current system incentivizes corruption as these government entities are free to award these lucrative contracts to any firm/legal team they decide with little oversight in the selection process. This bill forces these government entities to award these contracts (contracts that are funded with taxpayer money) based off of considerations of price, experience of the counsel, past results the counsel has achieved, etc. This change ensures that the state government will be more prudent in spending taxpayer dollars.

Fees; authorize Department of Revenue to charge and place in special fund to defray costs of shipping alcoholic beverages. Alive
Analysis: This bill creates a new fund for the shipping of alcoholic beverages for the ABC. This is not a new expenditure, only a change in the funding mechanism for this specific cost. However, the market of alcoholic beverages should be free and independent. Because we allow the state government to legislate the availability of alcohol in our state, we end up spending public money on the operations of the ABC, which would be unnecessary if alcohol sales were unregulated and left to the free market.

Abandoned manufactured or mobile homes; establish procedure for disposition. Dead
Analysis: This bill outlines the procedure through which the state may dispose of abandoned mobile or manufactured homes. This is not a primary function of government. Abandoned homes can be dealt with through already-existing legal functions of the state and are ultimately the responsibility of the owners of any land that these homes are left on. This bill represents another government expansion into an area of private life that is unneeded, unnecessary and wasteful of our public tax dollars.

SB 2439
Good Policy
Taxation; extend exemptions and credits for certain equipment used in the deployment of broadband technologies. Dead

SB 2470
Bad Policy
Taxation; allow denial of permit to engage in business as a different legal entity until previous taxes have been paid. Dead
Analysis: This bill allows for the denial of a permit to engage in certain business activities if the state finds that the individual applying for the permit owes a tax liability to the state. This bill operates under the assumption that you don't have a right to operate a business without government approval. Owing money to the state is not a legitimate justification for the state to deny anyone the right to operate a business.

Alcoholic beverages; revise definition of 'qualified resort area' to include land owned by a certain state institution of higher learning. Dead
Analysis: This bill recognizes institutions of higher learning as "qualified resort areas". This means that these institutions may apply for a "qualified resort area" waiver that, if approved, would allow for the sale of alcohol at that location. This bill also strikes from the law a provision that bans the sale and consumption of alcohol at any public sporting event. This bill represents a step in the direction, away from antiquated alcohol legislation that attempts to regulate the morality of its people.
SB 2488
Neutral
Motor vehicle title; change vehicle age from 10 to 20 years for odometer disclosure exemption to conform with federal mandate. Dead
Analysis: As it stands, in the event of a sale of a vehicle aged 10 years or under, the seller must disclose the exact mileage of the vehicle. This bill raises that threshold to 20 years or younger. As a result, all vehicles sold in Mississippi that are 20 years or younger must come included with the exact mileage information. This change in law reflects the current federal law on the matter.

These bonds will protect the tax payer from the possible misuse of funds by these officials.

Under this bill licenses can only be revoked after the 3rd or 4th offense. This bill will make it more difficult for the state to seize a business's license to sell alcohol.

It also introduces penalties for those under 21 who falsely claim to be 21 years or older in an attempt to purchase alternative nicotine products. It also explicitly authorizes law enforcement officers to use persons under age 21 in attempts to catch businesses not complying with the law. This bill expands government authority and degrades social responsibility.
