The Mississippi House of Representatives ground to a halt last week after members of the Black Caucus felt slighted by a Supreme Court redistricting bill. Members of the Black Caucus had bills read in their entirety, significantly slowing the process, and House leaders passed a rule change to try to get things done more quickly. By late Friday, both sides had reached a truce. Daily Journal Capitol Bureau Chief Bobby Harrison (11:13) joins Derek and Brad to talk more about the standoff and what happens now as the House faces a looming deadline to pass bills before they automatically die. Also on today’s show, Daily Journal reporter Caleb Bedillion (18:48) breaks down next week’s 1st Congressional District Republican Primary election between Trent Kelly and Paul Clever, and Brad (28:36) provides the wackiest crime reports of last week. We also discuss Sunday night’s Academy Awards (1:05).
