Hire MS

Keeping the money in mississippi.

That's the goal of "hire mississippi," a program recently started by northern district public service commissioner brandon presley.

The initiative allows businesses to sign up to do work with the state's largest utilities.

Presley says in 2016, 70-percent of the money spent by utility companies for operations and maintenance went to out-of- state contractors.

An event at emcc this morning gave contractors a chance to get on the list to be considered for future work.

I'm tired of driving seeing out of state car tags and out of state workers and out of state businesses doing work in mississippi when we know good and well that there are businesses here that can be doing that work.

So hire mississippi program is aimed at that and it's aimed at our mississippi businesses, trying to make sure we help the people in our state.

The state's five largest utility companies were at the event this morning to talk to contractors.
