Haley Barbour on Government Reform
Republican MS Governor
I can tell you, Toyota would not have located in Mississippi if we hadn't passed tort reform. Four years ago Mississippi had lost more than 38,000 jobs under the Musgrove Administration. Our state had lost 22% of its manufacturing jobs during those four years--the worst in the nation.
Because of tort reform, revamped job training, reformed economic development programs and closer cooperation between state and local leaders, in this administration there has been a net increase of more than 41,000 jobs. Today more people are working in Mississippi than at any other time in our state's history.
