Bill Number Bill Description Bill Status
HB 82
Bad Policy
Community or junior colleges; authorize to administer construction contracts of $1,000,000.00 or less, and exempt certain oversight. Alive
Analysis: This bill reduces government transparency and accountability by removing authority and oversight of bond funds. Government should preserve its proper functions necessary to verify government spending is efficient. The Department of Finance and Administration is tasked with the responsibility of oversight and should retain such authority without exemptions unless the net benefits of increased efficiency such exemptions exceed the potential for inefficiency and mismanagement in government building projects and associated maintenance.
HB 136
Not Rated
Individual bond; require for public officers and employees handling or having the custody of public funds. Alive
Analysis:
HB 202
Neutral
Mississippi Development Authority; bring forward various sections of law relating to. Dead
Analysis: This bill in its current form makes no changes to existing law. However, this bill brings forward code sections dealing with the Mississippi Development Authority for possible amendment at a later time. Therefore, this rating is subject to change as the bill moves through the legislative process.
HB 311
Good Policy
Sales tax; exempt certain transfers of motor vehicles involving partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations. Dead
Analysis: This bill reduces unnecessary government burdens on businesses and reduces tax liability collections by eliminating additional tax liabilities on vehicles transferred among shareholders of LLCs and members of corporations.
HB 374
Neutral
Distinctive motor vehicle license tag; authorize for supporters of various organizations. Alive
Analysis: This bill provides a way for citizens of Mississippi to willingly choose to support a specific organization through the selection of a distinctive motor vehicle license tag. Citizen engagement is essential to the overall stability of representative government. Government should find more ways to obtain funding through voluntary programs such as this.
HB 425
Good Policy
Ad valorem tax; revise certain provisions regarding when an application for change of property assessment may be made. Alive
Analysis: Allows assessors the ability to use knowledge of unique property circumstances to change, cancel, or decrease the tax assessment. This bill allows greater flexibility for ensuring taxes are assessed correctly. *This bill brings forward numerous code sections. This action requires greater scrutiny of this bill as it moves through the legislative process. Code sections “brought forward" are opened up for amending. Significant deviations from this bill's initial intent due to language changes made at any time during the legislative process may result in its policy rating being changed if such deviations violate the principles of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy.
HB 499
Neutral
Qualified equity investment tax credits; extend authority of Mississippi Development Authority to allocate. Alive
Analysis: This bill continues an existing tax credit for an additional three years. Ideally, government should reduce its overall spending which in turn would result in taxpayers keeping more of their own money.
HB 500
Neutral
Mississippi Home Corporation; extend reverter on authority to issue a certain amount of bonds. Alive
Analysis:
HB 508
Neutral
Department of Revenue; allow retiring law enforcement officer of to retain issued sidearm. Alive
Analysis:
HB 509
Good Policy
Unemployment compensation; allow withholding of state income tax. Alive
Analysis: While it would probably be in the best interest of the taxpayers to not have unemployment compensation be subject to further taxes, this bill allows for the tax deduction to be made on the front end of the payment.
HB 510
Neutral
Motor vehicle certificate of title; limit period for which Department of Revenue must retain. Alive
Analysis: While the intent of this bill seeks to decrease the amount of time the Department of Revenue is required to keep Certificate of Titles on file, the potential unintended consequences could result in decreased government efficiency involving applications to transfer one’s existing vehicle title to an Antique Auto tag which requires vehicles be at least 20 years old. When making changes to existing statute it is imperative that specific amounts of time referenced do not conflict with other section of applicable code and/or administrative rules.
HB 511
Bad Policy
Amusement ride operating permit decal; revise period for issuance. Alive
Analysis: This bill amends the issuing period for amusement ride decals in a way that adds unnecessary restrictions to business operations. In addition, the specific changes are in direct conflict with existing language in the statute which could potentially result in increased government inefficiency. *See lines 11-12 & lines 30-32 in the Strike-Through version of the bill
HB 512
Bad Policy
ABC agents/inspectors; revise certain provisions regarding powers of. Alive
Analysis: This bill seeks to expand the power of ABC agents by removing code wording that explicitly states that nothing in the section shall be construed as granting agents and inspectors of the alcoholic beverage control division general police powers. The current actions of ABC are already wildly beyond the intended scope of government and thus deserves to be curtailed not expanded.
HB 514
Good Policy
Sales tax; exempt sales of tangible personal property or services to DeafBlind Community of Mississippi, Inc. Dead
Analysis: This bill gives sales tax exemptions to the DeafBlind Community of Mississippi. Ideally, all Mississippi citizens would be given similar tax reductions, but this is a fine move that marginally reduces the tax authority of the state.
HB 516
Bad Policy
Department of Revenue; allow department appraisers to receive certain pay increases upon completing certain training. Alive
Analysis: This is a back door attempt to approve mass pay increase for county tax assessors and their employees.
HB 518
Bad Policy
Department of Revenue; authorize to create wholesale to retail accountability program. Dead
Analysis: This bill expands the power of the Department of Revenue and forces individuals to spend more time cataloging and recording information about sales of candy, food, and nonalcoholic beverages to the DoR. In a time when small businesses are struggling, why would the state attempt to place additional burdens on individuals? Ultimately, as with so much of the legislature's focus, this is an effort to ensure that the government is taking as much money from private citizens as it can.
HB 519
Good Policy
Motor vehicle license tags; remove requirement for apportioned vehicles to have decal with expiration month/year on tag. Alive
Analysis: This bill eliminates the requirement to physically place new decals on apportioned vehicles every year. The government should continually find new ways to reduce waste and unnecessary requirements placed on businesses and individuals.
HB 520
Bad Policy
Use tax; revise certain provisions regarding funds distributed to municipalities/counties for road improvements. Alive
Analysis: This bill reduces government accountability by allowing municipalities/counties to accumulate debt, which is purported to be for road and bridge improvements, which utilizes future use taxes as collateral and/or guarantee of payment. Government should operate using the funds it has available.
HB 572
Neutral
Alcoholic beverages; revise definition of 'qualified resort area' under the Local Option Alcoholic Beverage Control Law. Alive
Analysis: This bill expands the alcohol market within the existing, state-controlled system. However, this bill also brings forward all applicable code sections relating to the establishment of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division of the Department of Revenue for possible amendment and contains a reverse repealer. Our legislators should use this opportunity to dismantle and ultimately abolish the ABC. Government should not hold a monopoly on alcohol in our state.
HB 628
Not Rated
Highway privilege tax; add a gross vehicle weight category for carriers of property with additional tax. Alive
Analysis:
HB 638
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; revise various provisions relating to distilleries. Dead
Analysis: This bill increases individual liberty to operate in a flawed system. This bill expands the ability of distilleries to sell on-premises; however, it maintains the government monopoly on wholesale alcoholic beverage in the state of Mississippi. This is not the proper role of government. Individuals should be free to participate in the free market to the fullest extent possible, and the only role the government should play in this is to protect and preserve individuals freedom and liberty and, in all other things, get out of the way.
HB 667
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; delete requirement for immediate permit revocation for certain prohibited sales. Alive
Analysis: This bill increases individual freedom and liberty by removing a government mandate that requires a business owner immediately lose his or her ability to participate in the state’s flawed alcohol regulatory system. Ideally government should eliminate its regulations on the free exchange of goods and services to the fullest extent possible.
HB 746
Neutral
Mississippi Motor Vehicle Commission Law; revise regarding warranty reimbursement. Alive
Analysis:
HB 762
Not Rated
Bonds; revise purposes for which bonds authorized for Town of Wesson may be used. Dead
Analysis:
HB 877
Neutral
Alcoholic beverages; revise definition of 'qualified resort area' under the Local Option Alcoholic Beverage Control Law. Dead
Analysis: This bill adds an additional category to the definition of ‘qualified resort area,’ which expands regulated access resulting in the appearance of increased individual freedom. However, this bill simply expands the scope of the existing flawed system regulating alcohol in the state of Mississippi. Government should eliminate the regulations currently in place concerning alcohol in our state. The proper role of government is to protect individuals’ ability to participate in the free market.
HB 945
Not Rated
Light wine, beer and light spirit product; revise number of qualified electors required to petition for election to prohibit or authorize. Alive
Analysis:
HB 955
Good Policy
Abandoned mobile homes; establish a procedure to dispose of. Alive
Analysis: This bill provides individual property owners with a mechanism with which to offset debts owed and/or have abandoned mobile homes legally removed from their property. The bill clarifies existing law and adds language to establish a navigable process for landowners in line with existing procedures for civil action.
HB 997
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; remove DOR from being wholesale distributor, authorize issuance of wholesaler's permits. Dead
Analysis: This bill dismantles the state's monopoly on wholesale alcohol distribution within its borders. This action is a positive move toward free market principles. It also converts its “markup” (which is thought of as the “profit”) of 27.5% to a tax of 18% on the gross proceeds of private wholesalers. All other taxes on alcohol will remain.This tax is still too high and is in addition to existing excise taxes already levied on these goods. The fee prescribed by this bill for the new wholesaler’s permit is $5,000. (See line 925)
HB 1063
Bad Policy
Transformative renewable energy projects; authorize boards of supervisors to designate as such for certain tax purposes. Dead
Analysis: This bill interferes in the free market and manipulates the energy market to create more favorable conditions for one sector or another. This is not the proper role of government. Reduction in the amount of taxes government collects is positive; however, the negative consequences of market manipulation far outweigh the positives produced by this bill.
HB 1076
Neutral
Retailer Tax Fairness Act; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill attempts to rectify an issue created by government passage of the numerous, improper local sales taxes. Government should tax only for proper, core functions. Many, if not all, of these local sales taxes fund spending on projects, programs, and services that are not within the proper role of government. Businesses located in the many areas in our state with these improper local sales taxes are currently charged increased processing fees on sales because these taxes are incorrectly included in the totals and are not set aside as state taxes are. As such, even though this bill creates new law that intercedes in private business transactions, this bill is not expanding the scope and authority of government in negative way.
HB 1091
Neutral
Light wine, light spirit product and beer; authorize microbreweries and revise various sections of law. Alive
Analysis: This bill adds additional categories of businesses to the state’s existing statutes, which expands regulated access resulting in the appearance of increased individual freedom. However, this bill simply expands the scope of the existing flawed system regulating alcohol in the state of Mississippi. Government should eliminate the regulations currently in place concerning alcohol in our state. The proper role of government is to protect individuals’ ability to participate in the free market.
HB 1095
Bad Policy
Department of Revenue; authorize to compromise and settle certain tax liabilities. Alive
Analysis: This bill expands the power of government to collect tax liabilities it otherwise has been unable to collect. This bill also expands individual liberty by specifying that the Department of Revenue is authorized to compromise with individuals regarding their past due tax liabilities. Unfortunately, specific language in this bill severely limits individual liberty by removing statute of limitations protections in cases of misrepresentation, “whether intentionally or not.” (See lines 39-42) This bill currently has an amendment to add a reverse repealer waiting to be passed by the House floor. Therefore, the rating of this bill is subject to change as it moves through the legislative process.
HB 1135
Neutral
Alcoholic beverages; create delivery service permit. Alive
Analysis: This bill creates a new permit under the state’s existing statutes, which expands regulated access resulting in the appearance of increased individual freedom. However, this bill simply expands the scope of the existing flawed system regulating alcohol in the state of Mississippi. Government should eliminate the regulations currently in place concerning alcohol in our state. The proper role of government is to protect individuals’ ability to participate in the free market.
HB 1136
Bad Policy
Mississippi Educational Talent Recruitment Act; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill expands the scope of government beyond its proper role and increases wasteful spending of taxpayer money on private business. Specifically, this bill creates a program to subsidize private companies up to $25,000 to hire recruiting services to find potential employees who live in other states. This bill also creates an improper government program to provide a $5,000 grant for college graduates to purchase a home. In addition to several other improper uses of taxpayer money, this bill also creates a $1,200 tax deduction for an out-of-state teleworker to pay for broadband.
HB 1137
Not Rated
Ad valorem tax; revise certain provisions regarding the determination of true value of land used for agricultural purposes. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1139
Good Policy
Income, sales and use taxes; remove requirement that certain taxpayers pay June tax liability on or before June 25. Alive
Analysis: This bill increases government accountability by removing a statutory pre-payment month instituted by the Legislature several years ago to fill a budget deficit. This bill returns the due date of tax liability in our state for the month of June to its pre-existing, consistent date in line with the due date for each month throughout the year.
HB 1142
Bad Policy
Construction; revise contractor's tax regarding certain, require permits in counties/municipalities with construction codes. Dead
Analysis: This bill expands the scope and authority of government beyond its proper role and places additional regulations, restrictions, and fees on individuals and reduces their ability to freely participate in the marketplace. Government should reduce its interference in the free market.
HB 1197
Not Rated
Dual-phase design-build method of construction contracting; revise certain provisions of. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1230
Not Rated
Mississippi Development Authority; allow businesses located on tribal lands to be eligible for certain discretionary programs. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1284
Bad Policy
Department of Revenue License Tag Acquisition Fund; revise certain provisions regarding. Alive
Analysis: This bill decreases government accountability and transparency by removing the requirement that the Department of Revenue License Tag Acquisition Fund receive an appropriation from the Legislature for its operations and moves this fund back to a special fund agency. This action is a reversal of the 2016 legislation enacted to streamline the funding process and increase accountability and transparency in government spending. By returning this fund to a special fund agency status, expenditures will not have direct oversight by the Legislature. Appropriation is a core function of the Legislature, the authority of which should not be ceded to agency and department heads who not accountable to the people of Mississippi.
HB 1296
Not Rated
Historic property income tax credit; revise certain provisions regarding. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1297
Bad Policy
Bonds; authorize issuance for the Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund. Alive
Analysis: This bill increases state government debt. This bill states the “necessity for the issuance of bonds only in the amount necessary to match projected federal funds available through the following federal fiscal year.” Government should not increase the state's debt based on projected federal funds. All government funds are taxpayers’ money. Policies such as this place debts not only on current taxpayers but also on future generations.
HB 1322
Not Rated
Income tax; authorize credit for certain railroad reconstruction/replacement expenditures. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1351
Bad Policy
Bonds; increase amount that may be issued for the Local Governments and Rural Water Systems Improvements Revolving Loan Fund. Alive
Analysis: This bill increases state government debt and reduces government accountability by authorizing an increase in the amount of state obligation bonds for projects within local governments and rural water systems. State government should not spend taxpayer money, especially taxpayer money it does not currently possess, on projects that it has no authority to audit. Neither local governments nor rural water systems fall under the authority of Mississippi’s State Auditor. This bill is irresponsible fiscal policy and will inevitably lead to additional burdens on future generations of Mississippians.
HB 1356

Analysis:
HB 1415
Not Rated
Bonds; authorize issuance for IHL and community colleges capital improvements. Dead
Analysis:
HB 1416
Bad Policy
Mississippi Flexible Tax Incentive Act: create. Dead
Analysis: This bill creates a new tax incentive program for businesses to offset their state tax liabilities. In general, government should reduce its overall tax burden on businesses operating in our state. However, this bill outlines very specific criteria for program eligibility. In addition, this bill reduces government transparency and accountability by explicitly stating that subcategories and breakouts are not subject to Mississippi's Public Records Act regarding their participation in this incentive program. Agreements in this incentive program made by the Research Center division of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and the University Research Center division of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning are also exempted from disclosure. (See lines 1597 – 1618) Understandably public disclosure of research materials could, in some instances, be of concern; however, this bill removes public disclosure requirements regarding certain financial aspects. Government should reduce complexity in navigating records and increase transparency to ensure citizens have full confidence in government programs that cherry-picking businesses to be afforded special tax incentive while excluding the fast majority of businesses in our state.
HB 1420
Not Rated
Ad valorem tax; exempt property of certain not-for-profit corporations used to provide swimming lessons and training. Alive
Analysis:
HB 1439
Good Policy
Mississippi Tax Freedom Act of 2021; create. Dead
Analysis: This bill reduces tax liabilities on hard-working Mississippians by adopting a fair and equitable, forward-thinking tax policy that will improve the lives of all our citizens and our posterity. Combining a tremendous reduction in the sales tax percentage on groceries and the complete elimination of our state's income tax over a set period of time with a modest increase in our state’s overall sales tax and increases to sales taxes on specific items, this bill truly sets into motion like no other bill in recent memory our state’s trajectory towards the high road to freedom. Mississippians know best how to spend their hard-earned money. This bill takes the state government‘s hand off our paychecks.

Good Policy

Analysis: This bill continues Mississippi's flawed monopoly on the alcohol market in our state. However, the addition of a delivery service permit will expand access in the poorly run existing system.
SB 2805
Good Policy
Alcoholic beverages; remove provision requiring DOR to immediately revoke permit for certain unlawful sales. Dead
Analysis: This bill reduces government overreach by limiting actions by DOR that place burdens on individuals and businesses operating in our state. The government should repeal unnecessary regulations and restrictions on individuals and businesses and promote the free market to the fullest extent possible.
SB 2806
Neutral
Department of Revenue; bring forward code sections relating to ABC Division and authority to contract for services. Dead

SB 2814
Neutral
Unemployment benefits; allow withholding for state income taxes, corresponding to withholding for federal income taxes. Dead
Analysis: This bill conforms state income tax withholding procedures with existing federal income tax withholding procedures. Ideally, government should eliminate state income tax as many other surrounding states have done. Eliminating the state income tax would dramatically change the economic landscape of Mississippi and cast a new, more attractive light on our state for young professionals and entrepreneurs looking to put down roots.
SB 2815
Good Policy
Motor vehicles; remove requirement for apportioned vehicles to have decal with expiration month and year on license tag. Dead
Analysis: This bill removes unnecessary regulations. Government should reduce its interference in the everyday lives of individuals to the fullest extent possible.

SB 2816
Neutral
Public officials and employees; allow Department of Revenue appraisers to receive same pay increases as county tax assessors. Alive
Analysis: This bill could potentially lead to increased government spending; however, it does not actually increase spending.
