Wyatt Waters painting auctioned

In 2005 the Madison County Foundation commissioned talented watercolor artist Wyatt Waters to travel to Washington DC to paint Senator Thad Cochran seated at the piano in the Weber House. The painting was auctioned at a MCF fundraiser and presented to special guest Senator Cochran. Unable to accept due to ethics rules at the time, the original painting was on loan to the MCF which later merged in 2014 with the Madison County Business League to form the Madison County Business League & Foundation. The painting will be returned to Senator Cochran to hang in his archives at the University of Mississippi!

Shown with Wyatt Waters signing numbered prints at Senator Thad Cochran’s official retirement dinner. The prints were sold to benefit “Extra Table.”

Representative Cory Wilson looks back at the Session

As Summer Begins, a Look Back at the Session.

The 2018 Regular Legislative Session is in the books. The outlook for Mississippi’s economy appears to be strengthening, yielding a slight boost in revenue for the FY 2019 budget. We provided small increases for education, Child Protective Services, the Department of Public Health and the Department of Public Safety. We also set aside two percent of revenues for the state’s rainy day fund.

We have unfinished business, too. Most of the thousands of bills filed each year do not survive to become law (thank goodness). In fact, one of my bills (among those that died), House Bill 347, would provide that the legislature convene only every other year. I’d like to see the legislature convene less, and focus more on key priorities. But I digress.

There were some important agenda items that died this year, a point of frustration for me and for many of you. There is talk about a Special Session to address funding for roads and bridges, but as of this writing, Governor Bryant has not called legislators back to Jackson. Now that the dust has settled, you can review a detailed summary by clicking here. As always, thank you for your ideas and thoughts on what we did, and did not, do!
