STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR

"I would like to thank the Representative Virginia Carlton, Labor Chairman Harvey Moss, and the House for passing Senate Bill 2480, which would reform the unemployment tax formula.

As I said in my State of the State address when I offered this proposal, this change is a win-win. We can give small businesses a tax break to help job creation, redirect $20 million to fund additional workforce training programs at our community colleges to help keep unemployment low, to help our workers, and do all of this without effecting Mississippi's budget."
