JACKSON, Miss. (Feb. 4, 2016) — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has convened an extraordinary session of the Mississippi legislature today to consider measures aimed at supporting an industrial project that would include “certain tire or other rubber or automotive manufacturing plants….”
The session will be asked to amend several sections of the Mississippi Code of 1972 — also known as the Mississippi Major Economic Impact Act — to provide for financial assistance and/or tax breaks for an industrial project of this nature.
The governor's proclamation does not identify the targeted company or companies, but Mississippi media have reported widely that the company in question is Continental A.G.
