On Feb 18, 2010, the Senate concurred 26-22 with the House amendments to SB 2688 restoring funding cut by the Governor to various agencies. Within this bill National Board Certification funds were restored by $1,925,453.
SB 2688 can be viewed on the Mississippi Legislature website. The bill will now go to the Governor. However, Governor Barbour has said that he will veto the bill. If so, the legislature can vote to override the Governor’s veto. We will keep you informed of the status of SB 2688.
