Members of the Mississippi House of Representatives will hold a press conference on HB 1523 (Religious Accommodations Act) Tuesday Morning, April 12th, on the Mississippi Capitol steps. 

The purpose of the conference is to announce the immediate introduction of a concurrent suspension resolution intended to suspend the rules and regular deadlines in the House of Representatives. 

Members who opposed the bill will seek the approval of the introduction and passage of the “The Mississippi Economic & Tourism Recovery Act (an opportunity to repeal HB 1523).

This suspension resolution is the required first step in a process to allow the repeal HB1523.
