Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant will formally issue a special session call this afternoon to state legislators to consider an economic development package. 

 

The meeting, scheduled to take place 10 a.m. Friday, has been linked by lawmakers to a project involving an automotive supplier opening a plant in West Point. 

 

In a press release, Bryant said he's calling legislators to convene to discuss a development, "that will bring needed jobs to our state.  

 

"This is an exciting project and a great testament to the quality of our workforce," Bryant said.
