Governor Opposes Tax Increases and Amnesty Program

In a recent State of the State address, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour expressed that he does not support state tax increases nor tax amnesty programs as solutions to current budget issues. Alternatively, the governor called for a small increase in the Tax Commission budget for collecting unpaid taxes owed to the state (2010 State of the State Address, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, January 18, 2010).
