Mississippi: Proposal to add modified recall law for municipal officials loses in the House

The House voted down 53-60 H.B. 370, a bill proposed by Representative Shanda Yates (I) to allow recall elections for municipal officials in Mississippi. The idea seems to have come about after fights between Jackson's Democratic Mayor and the Republican Governor over water problems in the city.

I wrote an op-ed on the subject of recalls in Mississippi -- hopefully, it will come out (if not, I'll run it here). Here's a previous look back on the law.
