JACKSON, Miss. — Black lawmakers said funding public schools and infrastructure projects at Mississippi’s historically black universities are among their priorities as budget-writing moves into its final phases this session.

The Mississippi Legislative Black Caucus discussed those projects and others during a public meeting Monday on the campus of Tougaloo College. They urged residents to lobby legislators to pass the proposals.

Rep. Omeria Scott, D-Laurel, said a proposal to implement an intervention initiative for failing school districts and add services for “at risk” families should also be considered.

Mississippi currently has six school districts under state control, and many of them have a majority-black student population.
