WTOK – Hosemann on agenda, transition

The leaders elected to serve Mississippi in 2020 are preparing for the start of their terms, including Lt. Gov.-elect Delbert Hosemann.

Hosemann is putting in the work even before he takes the oath of office, meeting with all 52 senators and prepping for committee assignments.

“I’ve got an agenda for transportation. I’ve got an agenda for healthcare. I’ve got an agenda for education, public health, Medicaid,” Hosemann said.

The current secretary of state has been meeting with various groups and state agencies related to those to form his agenda.

Among the issues he’s ready to tackle is healthcare. Here’s what Hosemann said regarding the controversial question of what will happen, if anything, with Medicaid expansion.

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith Introduces Legislation to Stop Expansion of Dangerous Abortion Drugs


Today Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) introduced the Support and Value Expectant (SAVE) Moms & Babies Act to prevent approval of new abortion drugs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), prevent the loosening of FDA regulation of already-approved abortion drugs, and prevent abortion drugs from being dispensed remotely by mail or through telemedicine. The House version of this bill was introduced in September by Rep. Bob Latta (R-OH).

The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) praised Sen. Hyde-Smith’s leadership in a statement:
“We are grateful to Senator Hyde-Smith for championing legislation to fight the reckless expansion of chemical abortion,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The abortion lobby has attempted to interfere with protective FDA regulations and flood the U.S. market with dangerous abortion drugs from overseas, threatening the health and safety of vulnerable women. On the heels of an abandoned study designed to discredit pro-life abortion pill reversal, which only proved the serious and potentially deadly risks inherent to abortion pills, the need for this bill could not be more pressing. We strongly support the SAVE Moms & Babies Act and urge Congress to pass it swiftly.”
