GOVERNOR ORDERS STATE OFFICES IN JACKSON TO CLOSE FOR FOURTH DAY

Governor Haley Barbour extended the closure of state offices in Jackson to Thursday due to the continuing lack of water pressure citywide. The Governor urged agency heads to decide whether key personnel in their agencies should report to work and to notify them accordingly; otherwise, state offices in Jackson will be closed. State offices have been closed since Monday when broken water lines disrupted service, causing a threat to health and safety.
