FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Jackson, MS): The Mississippi Center for Public Policy has re-launched its Legislative Tracker.

The updated website will summarize legislation being moved through the process and make the information assessible to both the average and scholarly viewer, grade each bill on whether it increases or decreases liberty, and amplify transparency amongst legislative output.

The MCPP Legislative Tracker will:

  • Show what bills are being discussed and moved through the legislative process
  • Allow MCPP to rate the bills, giving a green light for those that extend liberty, a red light to those that limit liberty, and a yellow light to those that we are ambivalent about – an “MCPP APROVED” stamp will be given to bills that especially enhance freedom and liberty.
  • Show a rating for each member of the legislature, keeping lawmakers in line with the promises they made to their constituents


“All Mississippians deserve to know whether their legislators are effectively representing the interests of their communities,” said Senior Director of Policy & Communications Hunter Estes. “Our Legislative Tracker helps to accomplish exactly that. We summarize legislation, offer our thoughts on the impact bills could have on your rights and liberties, and publish this information to the public. We believe that transparency is the best way to ensure our representatives carry out the promises they made to the people. We hope you’ll find this tool valuable as you work to stay up to date on what’s happening under the dome of our capitol building.”
