A resolution requesting the introduction and passage of a bill entitled “Citizens for Economic Development Act” (CEDA) is now available. Specifically, we are requesting that the Mississippi Legislature pass this bill and the Governor sign it into law. This bill would allow citizens of a municipality the option of voting on the imposition of a local sales tax. The purpose of this legislation is to locally fund, without impacting the state general fund budget, the implementation and completion of special projects which would enhance the quality of life of local citizens and improve economic development opportunities for the municipality as well as the state. We are asking each MML Member city to consider passing a resolution in support of CEDA. We have developed a template which might be helpful to your board or council if you decide to pass a resolution in support of CEDA. Please send a copy of your passed resolution to Quincy Mukoro at firstname.lastname@example.org To obtain the template in Word, please contact June Dunlap at email@example.com
