The 2020 Legislative session will remain suspended beyond April 1.
On March 18, the Mississippi Legislature put its work on hold due the impact of COVID-19. The hope was to return on April 1, but the suspension resolution gave the Lt. Governor and Speaker the authority to make a determination if the return date needed to be extended. No specific date is set for reconvening the Session, and legislative leadership is continuing to analyze the impact of COVID-19.
