At the Neshoba County Fair, Republican State Treasurer Lynn Fitch called
for the legislature to pass a fair pay act to ensure equal pay for
women. Representative Becky Currie (R-Brookhaven) heeded the call and
introduced HB818 – an act to provide equal pay for equal work.
Representatives Carolyn Crawford (R-Pass Christian) and David Baria
(D-Bay St. Louis) cosponsor the bill. Baria introduced his own bill as
well: HB9 – the Evelyn Gandy Fair Pay Act.
