Reeves Gives Democrat Immigration, Abortion Bills

Up against a deadline to pass bills out of committee, Sen. Hob Bryan, a Democrat from Amory, left two controversial bills off his committee's schedule today.

The fate of some of the most contentious bills this year rests with Sen. Hob Bryan, a Democrat from Amory.

Tomorrow is the deadline for committees to pass bills originating in the other house, or they die. Last week, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves assigned an anti-immigration bill and an anti-abortion "fetal heartbeat bill" to the Senate Judiciary B Committee, which Bryan chairs.

Bryan will be the speaker at today's Stennis-Capitol Press Forum, a regular luncheon series that features various public officials and political candidates.
