STATEMENT OF GOV. BARBOUR ON SAVING FEDERAL FUNDS FOR FY 2012

Congress recently passed a $26.1 billion bill that gives Mississippi an additional enhancement of $127 million in supplemental funds for Medicaid.

“I appreciate the leadership of both houses for agreeing that these additional funds should be saved and spent in Fiscal Year 2012 when we face a budget shortfall of more than $600 million,” Gov. Barbour said.
