JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Governor Tate Reeves signaled his support for the bill passed by the Mississippi Legislature, which provides relief for small businesses in the state.

The governor said he and his staff are reviewing the bill to make sure it’s in line with federal law and guidance.

The rare bipartisan bill, led by House Speaker Philip Gunn, Lt. Governor Delbert Hosemann and democratic leadership, sets aside $300 million of the $1.25 billion in CARES Act funds to create two programs.

The Mississippi Development Authority will administer the funds.
