H.B. 1109, which was passed by the Legislature and approved by Governor Bryant earlier this year, will take effect on January 1, 2018. It amends the current Miss. Code Ann. §27-104-7 that will, among other things, reconstitute the Public Procurement Review Board (PPRB), and abolish the Personal Services Contract Review Board (PSCRB).
