Rep. Stringer to Republican House Leadership: "Stop playing games"

While presiding over the House this week, Speaker Pro Tempore Greg Snowden (R-Meridian) limited debate on individual bills to ten minutes per bill.  Limiting discussion of bills on subjects ranging from elementary education to public safety was not well received by many members of the House Democratic Caucus. 

Rep. Johnny Stringer (D-Montrose) said, “The people of Mississippi deserve better than ten minutes of debate on bills that could impact their families’ lives.  I hope that Republican leadership will stop playing games and give this process the respect it deserves.”
