Reeves presents a budget that puts taxpayers first

Gov. Tate Reeves Tuesday released his Fiscal Year 2024 Executive Budget Recommendation. The Budget Recommendation highlights an agenda focused on fueling Mississippi’s economic engine, strengthening education and equipping Mississippi’s workforce with the skills needed to live fulfilling lives, heightening efforts to protect Mississippians and combat crime, and building a culture of life that makes it easier to raise a family.

“Mississippi’s economy is booming,” Reeves said. “Unemployment rates are at all-time lows, and we’re on pace to achieve record-shattering capital investment in 2022. We continue to reach new heights as a state, and it’s thanks to the hardworking people who live here.”

The governor went on to say that Mississippi has no plans to hit the brakes anytime soon.

“My Fiscal Year 2024 Executive Budget Recommendation builds on that success and highlights my administration’s core priorities for the next legislative session,” said Reeves.  

“Our ultimate aim is straightforward: to advance responsible policies that lay the foundation of a strong society and allow Mississippians to flourish,” said Reeves. “We will maximize freedom, we will protect your rights and safety, and we will build a future that every Mississippian can be proud of. In other words, my budget continues to put you – the taxpayer – first.”

Gov. Reeves’ top priorities for Fiscal Year 2024 include:

  • Eliminating the income tax
  • Advancing the New Pro-Life Agenda
  • Giving Mississippi children a first-rate education
  • Making it easier to raise a family
  • Lowering healthcare costs
  • Building a high-quality workforce
  • Protecting the safety of Mississippians
