It’s tradition at the Neshoba County Fair for the current Mississippi governor to have the last political speech after two days of speeches from politicians from around the state.

Gov. Phil Bryant took that opportunity on Thursday to praise what he called achievements by Mississippi that are rarely written about in the news media.

Bryant touched on the state’s education and economic improvements, and he also took time to explain what he sees as the reason why the Religious Accommodation Act, or House Bill 1523, is important for the state.
