JACKSON — Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has signed a bill to restore some of the budget cuts he made.
Even as he enacted the law Thursday, Barbour repeated what he’s been saying for weeks — that more cuts could be coming before the fiscal year ends June 30.
The bill restores $82 million of the $458.5 million Barbour trimmed because of revenue shortfalls. Separately, Barbour agreed to use stimulus funds to restore $4 million to community and junior colleges.
The state budget started last summer at nearly $6 billion.
Legislators are working on a budget for the new fiscal year that begins July 1.
The bill is Senate Bill 2495.
