Q Will you please reconsider your Opinion to Nowak of June 9, 2017, that stated that the reverse auction language of House Bill 1106 applies to state agencies and governing authorities?

A No. “We remain of the opinion that, due to the plain and unambiguous language contained in the statute, Mississippi Code Annotated Section 31-7-13, specifically Section 31-7-13(c)(i)(2), applies to state agencies and governing authorities.” (Attorney General’s Opinion to Smith, September 29, 2017) Also, see Opinion to Nowak, October 13, 2017.
