PROPERTY OWNER LIABILITY — Senate Bill 2901 , called the "Landowners Protection Act," says that anyone who owns, leases, operates, or maintains a commercial property in Mississippi will not be liable for any injury on the property caused by another person, unless the person in charge of the property did something that "impelled" the harmful action. Supporters say the new law will provide financial protection for property owners or managers, while critics say it could lead to negligence.

There will be a run off for some elected positions August 27th – 2 weeks from today. November 5th is the next general election in Mississippi. All our senators and representatives along with the statewide offices will be selected on that date. If you voted in the primary you can only vote in the same primary on the 27th. If you didn’t vote in the primary you can vote in either runoff primary. If you didn’t vote in the primary, you can still vote in the general election. 


Citizens need to register by October 7th to vote in the November 5th general election for Governor, Lt. Gov. and such. There are county positions that need to be filled by election in November also. Teens don’t need to be 18 by October 7th to register, just 18 by November 5th.  AND if you didn’t vote in the primary you can still vote in the general election.
