Economic Growth and Development
In Jasper and parts of Jones and Forrest Counties located in District 34, we are in need of economic activity that will yield higher household incomes. Instead of economic assurance we bargain away future sources of income needed to drive the operation of local and county government. Municipalities need additional sources of sales tax revenue to fund operations. She will work to support existing businesses and the creation of new businesses.
With an expansion in Medicaid, 130,000 Mississippians would have healthcare coverage and Mississippi would see over $1.4 billion in increased tax revenues as a result. Expansion would bring $8.7 billion in federal funds to the state and that would result in $14 billion in economic activity. Expansion would generate 20,000 new jobs. She wholeheartedly supports Medicaid expansion.
Criminal Justice Reform
She applauds the recent attention to reform. We must, however, put an immediate stop to the crippling impact of our current justice system focused on the"penal" nature rather than rehabilitation. We have not been able to curb crime with pure policing and incarceration. The sociological roots of criminal behavior must be addressed. She will work diligently for meaningful criminal justice reform in MS.
