NFIB Statement on AG Fitch's Concerns Over COVID-19 Stimulus Law

Date: March 17, 2021

NFIB State Director Dawn Starns McVea released the following statement today in response to Attorney General Lynn Fitch’s joining 20 other attorneys general in voicing concerns about a provision in the $1.9 trillion federal pandemic stimulus law that prohibits states from using the funds to offset tax cuts:

“We share the attorney general’s concern regarding the provisions of the recently passed American Rescue Plan. Everyone knows it’s been a tough year for Mississippi’s small businesses. The legislature is in the throes of figuring out how to eliminate individual income taxes, and if it is possible this year or needs further study.

“We applaud Governor Reeves and the legislature for doing everything they can to ease the financial pressure on Mississippi’s job creators, but we fear the provisions in the federal law could put this work in jeopardy.”
