State Sen. Briggs Hopson updated the Yazoo Lions Club Thursday on highlights of this year’s Legislative session. He was the guest of Lion Barry Bridgforth.By JAMIE PATTERSON
Sen. Briggs Hopson visited the Yazoo Lions Club this week to discuss a few changes and other proposals within Legislation.
From district lines to education to finances, Hopson covered a wide spectrum during an informative presentation to local club members.
One major change within Yazoo City in the near future is redistricting lines. The county is currently carved up among three state senators, including Hopson, Buck Clarke and Kenneth Wayne Jones.
That will change to two senators, District 22 and District 23, in the upcoming elections.
The District 23 seat, held by Sen. Jones, will move out of Yazoo County.
