Mississippi Tax Code 1629

Mississippi Tax Code

“The Mississippi House passed Bill 1629 today that allows sweeping changes in the Mississippi tax code. The plan is to phase out the state personal income tax, economy permitting, over the next 15 years. The Bill passed with 83 votes of yes and 32 votes of no with only 69 votes needed to get it to pass. I believe this vote speaks volumes to the positive approach to this idea in such a bipartisan manner. Whether for or against, at least things are getting done in Jackson. I believe this could be a bonus for the hard working citizens of this state and should stimulate our economy in a fashion beneficial for everyone.”

Sincerely,

Chandler Bramlett

Your Vote Matters!

“I have been making comments on “getting out ” to vote. Some of the comments back to me are that “they’re all out for themselves”, “they all chase the almighty dollar”, ” no one is worth voting for” and “if I vote for you will you vote for term limits”? Don’t “cop out” on me. There are many very good people in politics for the right reasons. You have just got to weed through the garbage and pick the right one. I have no problem with term limits and would vote in favor if it ever made it to the floor, but it never will. The beauty of voting is that you decide how long politicians stay in office, just show up and vote. If you want the power back in the people then you must vote, vote and keep voting. Be proud and vote loud!!

Sincerely,

Job Creation

“House Bill 1601 filed by Rep. Chuck Espy of Clarksdale, Ms, called the Mississippi Job Creations Act of 2015 would exempt the gross income of recent Mississippi graduates from income taxes if they were to seek employment within the state and stay. Although I don’t believe this Bill would “create” jobs, it certainly would allow us to fill existing jobs with needed “qualified” candidates. Created to help prevent the “brain drain” from Mississippi this “Bill” certainly caught my attention. What I would like to see is the possibility of offering scholarships to qualified students who in trade would owe the state 2 years of working in the state for each year of college paid. This would not only help in providing highly qualified employees available for employment within our state it would allow great assistance to highly qualified students seeking a college education. This also would allow the state better control of the type of employees needed by choosing the degree programs best suited for Mississippi employers to be included in the scholarship funds. During the “payback period” of employment these individuals would be paying taxes and in a sense returning the original money invested.”

Current Issues To Consider In Mississippi

Current Issues in Mississippi

“Of all the current issues we have before us, such as education funding, taxes, budgets, revenues etc, nothing is being said about how terrorists are wanting to target our malls and police. They are trying to recruit our youth to join them with their internet propaganda. Mississippi is not immune to this. Let’s not wait to see when or where it happens before we act. Most of this preparation can come through awareness among our citizens to our surroundings including our neighborhoods and schools. Be proactive and report any suspicious activity. We must look out for each other during these terrifying times. I never dreamed I would see the terror that has already occurred in this country and I fear what life will be like for my children in their future. Don’t wait to be told that we have trouble, look for it and be alert. Don’t think the Federal government has your back. All I see are warnings.”

Providing Transparency For Voters With The Same Goal In Mind!

“I should say now that some of my dearest friends are members of the Democratic Party. I have great respect for them and know that we all share the same desire for the best of our state and country. Although we sometimes disagree on the path we should take to get there, I cherish their thoughts on the process. With that said, I know that I can work across the aisle with my colleagues with the utmost respect to come to some agreement as to what is best for the citizens of Mississippi. While each of us remain loyal to our respective parties, providing transparency for Mississippians. See ya at the ballgame.”

School Funding in Mississippi

“Everyone is concerned about funding our public schools and rightfully so. The formula used by the Legislature is complicated at best and certainly needs our attention as to whether it has some flaws. At the moment we need money and lots of it. Using our present formula we have been short by approximately 250 million dollars give or take a few mill towards fully funding the school budget. My understanding is that the Republican lead Legislature has been chipping away at this shortfall for a few years now. Apparently this year an additional 106 million is going to be added getting us somewhat closer to what is said to be needed. I like all of you wish there was more but there isn’t unless we spend less somewhere else. The prison systems don’t want to give it up, nor do transportation, Medicaid, and so on and so on. Everyone seems to think we are already taxed to the “hilt” and would love some relief. It’s only natural for our Legislature to look at ways that our school systems might be more efficient. I know that everyone is up in arms about Initiative 42 and Initiative 42A and maybe that’s the way it should be. After all it’s our differences of opinion and the ability to work together is what formed this great country. I have no doubt that the school funding problem will be worked our in an amicable way in our Legislature and not by a Federal Court. As to what has occurred in the past Legislatures back to 1997 on both sides of the aisle had no bearing on what needs to be done today. It is time to put aside our differences, roll up our sleeves and get this problem worked out. I am ready.”
