GOVERNOR BARBOUR ANNOUNCES MEMBERS OF THE TAX STUDY COMMISSION
(JACKSON, Mississippi) – Governor Haley Barbour today named members of a public-private commission who will study Mississippi’s tax system on a comprehensive basis, including how federal and local tax structures affect Mississippi citizens and businesses.
“These individuals represent a wide range of expertise in this important subject matter; they come from business, legal, academic and legislative backgrounds. They also share a common bond in that they are all Mississippi taxpayers. I appreciate their voluntary service on this commission and know they will do an excellent and thorough job in carrying out this study,” Governor Barbour said.
Governor Barbour said the commission will provide a report of its findings by August 31, 2008 – after completion of Fiscal Year 2008 – to the Governor, the Mississippi Legislature and the public on recommendations for any adjustments. In addition, the staff of the Mississippi State Tax Commission will be asked to provide information requested by the commission, and the Legislature will be asked for a small, one-time appropriation to pay for support of the commission.
As announced earlier, Leland Speed, a Jackson businessman and former executive director of the Mississippi Development Authority, will chair the commission. Other members of the commission include:
Tony Adams Ron Aldridge Manley Barton Mike Bemis Joe Blount Paul Breazeale Tom Butchart Alveno N. Castilla Buck Clarke Cobie Collins Toni Cooley Socrates Garrett Karen Green Craig Hitt Delbert Hosemann Terri Hudson Paul Johnson Dean Kirby Bill Lampton Gene McGee Sonny Meredith Jay Moon Carl Nicholson Aubrey Patterson Tate Reeves Tommy Robertson Bill Rutledge Robert Smith Mike Summerford Troy Stovall Gray Swoope Forest Thigpen Anthony Topazi David Waide Percy Watson Charlie Williams
