What is the Governor's Commission?

Shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit, Governor Barbour announced the formation of the Governor's Commission on Recovery, Rebuilding and Renewalto develop a broad vision for a better Gulf Coast and South Mississippi. The Governor's Commission focuses on giving local leaders access to ideas and information that will help them decide what their region will look like five, ten, even twenty or thirty years from now. The Commission is advisory in nature. The final decisions on implementation will almost exclusively be made by local officials and private investors, not Jackson or Washington.

The Governor's Commission is funded by private donations. It accepts no government funding and solicits no money.

Who is on the Governor's Commission

The Governor's Commission is chaired by Jim Barksdale and includes community leaders and public officials from the affected areas. A group of about forty commissioners, along with other local leaders, will help lead discussions in the many community meetings that will be held.
