The MS Legislature in now in session; Lord help us.

Speaker of the House Philip Gunn (R) has appointed Democrat Representative Angela Cockerham to Chair the House Judiciary B Committee this year. Chairman Cockerham replaces very pro-gun Andy Gipson (R) as Chairman of Jud B. Gipson is now the Commissioner of Agriculture.
