The Mississippi House will be back for a second day of special session Wednesday.
Senators passed a bill Tuesday to let Gov. Phil Bryant dip further into the state’s financial reserves to plug a hole in the state budget.
The House needed a two-thirds vote to consider the bill the same day it passed the Senate. But, Democrats blocked Republican leaders’ effort to get that majority.
Democratic lawmakers say Republican leaders have shut them out of the budget process and have been irresponsible with state spending.
Mississippi’s budget year ends at midnight Thursday.
