Budget Cuts Fell Employees At Forestry Commission


JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Mississippi Forestry Commission is eliminating 75 jobs because of budget cuts. The commission will also undergo a major reorganization, consolidating the current seven districts into four new regions. Both the job cuts and reorganization come after a 16 percent cut in the commission’s budget, a $2.67 million shortfall for the upcoming fiscal year. The forestry commission also eliminated 25 positions last summer because of budget cuts.
