The Mississippi State Department of Health today lifted a boil water notice for the entire City of Jackson for the first time since July 29, 2022. Gov. Tate Reeves announced at a press conference today.
The Mississippi Economic Inclusion Coalition submitted this MFP Voices column in response to State Auditor Shad White’s report, “Dads Matter: The Taxpayer Cost of Fatherlessness,” writing that “good leaders are solution-oriented and often self-assess before passing the blame onto others.” But, they write, in this case, White missed the mark.
Jackson businesses that have suffered losses amid the Mississippi capital city’s ongoing water crisis will be able to apply for as much as $2 million in federal Economic Injury Disaster loans, Gov. Tate Reeves announced Wednesday.
