Senate convenes at 3 p.m., motion to reconsider the Senate plan is 4th on calendar

When the Mississippi Senate gavels in this afternoon, the fourth item on its calendar (agenda) will be the motion to reconsider the redistricting plan that passed last week.  In a procedural maneuver to gain more time to twist arms, Sen. Joey Fillingane (R-Sumrall) entered the motion immediately after passage of the plan last week.

In order to release the plan from the Senate, there must be a majority vote on a motion to table the motion to reconsider.  That should happen, and then the action will move back to the House.
