Senate amendment would end “cultural retail” subsidy. 


Senators adopted an amendment to Senate Bill 2922 Wednesday that would end the subsidy, which reimburses up to 30 percent of development costs by giving sales taxes to developers.

Lawmakers closed the “cultural retail” program to new applications, but three proposed malls — one each in D’Iberville, Flowood and Ridgeland — applied before the deadline and could get about $175 million.

The bill now goes to the House.
