Medicaid clears first hurdle

Happy Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

Thursday's heat was ridiculous and relief from it can come soon enough. As we start today off at 76 degrees, Meteorologist Michael Haynes will let us know when/if we can expect a relative cool down in his First Alert Forecast.

Happening today, Mississippi lawmakers will meet at the capitol for day two of a special session to see if they can set a budget for Medicaid before it expires on midnight Sunday.

Plus, former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez will not be returning home anytime soon following charges of murder.

And, Chick-fil-A's president weighed-in on the Supreme Court's DOMA ruling on Twitter only to delete the tweet later. Find out what he tweeted and why it's turning into a controversy at the top of the hour.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, you can find us on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday and a better weekend!
