State Bond Commission

The State of Mississippi’s Legislature created the State Bond Commission (the “Commission”) as part of the Executive Branch of the State Government. The Commission is responsible for the oversight of the State’s public finance program.

The composition of the Commission is described by MCA §31-17-101 as follows:

“There is hereby created a commission to be known as the “State Bond Commission” (hereinafter referred to as the “commission”), which shall consist of the Governor, Attorney General, and Treasurer of the State of Mississippi. The Governor shall act as chairman of the commission, the Attorney General shall act as secretary of the commission, and the State Treasurer shall be treasurer of the commission. The successive incumbents in the offices of Governor, Attorney General, and State Treasurer shall succeed their predecessors as members of the commission upon assumption of their duties and the completion of their oaths of office. The powers of the commission shall be vested in and exercised by a majority of the members of the commission. The commission may delegate to one or more of its members, or to its officers, agents and employees, such powers and duties as it may deem proper, and may adapt rules for the conduct of its business.”

The Commission holds public meetings on an as-needed basis which generally occur five to eight times per calendar year.
