CAPITOL - On Wednesday, Feb. 14, the Mississippi House of Representatives passed legislation to address the exodus of recent college graduates from the state of Mississippi, a problem that has come to be known as Mississippi's "brain drain."
The House unanimously approved a measure Wednesday that backers say could help stem brain drain — the phenomenon of young professionals leaving the state, taking their talents and skills with them.
House Bill 1550, referred to as 'brain drain' legislation, would give tax credits to recent college grads of accredited, four-year universities, either in or out of the state of Mississippi.
Young lawmakers announced a new "Virginia Future Caucus" on Wednesday. The group, made up of those 45 and younger, hope to create a bond among millennial lawmakers and be a voice of the generation on issues in the Virginia General Assembly.
