Press Releases
SENATOR WIGGINS AUTHORS PROCLAMATION SALUTING USS MISSISSIPPI
JACKSON, MS.-
“The naming of a Navy vessel after a state is a rare honor,” said U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Michael E. Jabaley, Jr.  Yet, Mississippi has received this honor four times over the last 170 years.  Make it five.  On June 2, 2012, the 377-foot Virginia-class attack submarine, the USS MISSISSIPPI (SSN-782) will be commissioned at the Port of Pascagoula.


Today on the floor of the Mississippi Senate, Senator Brice Wiggins, Chairman of the Senate Ports and Marine Resources Committee presented Pascagoula Mayor Robbie Maxwell and Commissioning Committee Chairman Jerry St. Pe Senate Concurrent Resolution 635 saluting the historic commissioning of the USS Mississippi.  “It is a great honor to have authored this resolution saluting the USS Mississippi Commissioning.  It was a special moment to stand on the Senate floor and present the resolution to Mayor Maxwell, Chairman St. Pe and Rear Admiral Jabaley.  I want to specifically thank Lt. Governor Reeves for his support of the commissioning and the resolution.  I invite all Mississippians to join us on the morning of June 2 in Pascagoula to celebrate the commissioning of the newest addition to our Navy’s first class fleet,” said Senator Wiggins. Senator Wiggins was joined by local colleagues, Senators Michael Watson and Tony Smith and Representatives Charles Busby and Manly Barton along with Senator Videt Carmichael and Senator Haskins Montgomery representing the Meridian area.  The Meridian Area Navy League has been overseeing the commissioning on the state level.

Statement from Senator Wiggins 1/11/2012

**UPDATE Jan 11th as of 3:30 CST**

“Today, I once again spoke with the Department of Marine Resources.  I was assured that the proposed plan will not go forward.  I, again, expressed that hearings should take place at the affected locale and that doing so is simply good government.  Please let me know if you have any questions on this issue or any other.”

***

From Senator Brice Wiggins,
Wednesday, Jan 11th.

"I first found out about the dredge spoils being placed off Pascagoula beach at 3:00 p.m. on Mon. I was with Dr. Walker, director of DMR, at the time and told him that the residents objected to the plan.

I met with him later that night where he told me that he objected to the footprint as proposed and that it would not go forward as is and would in no way obstruct Pascagoula's water view.  He reiterated this to me yesterday morning.  I understand that the plan was tabled at the meeting last night  which is good.

From my understanding the plan is connected to a project at VT Halter that will bring in many, many jobs.  I am told there are other plans of where to put the dredge spoils and I have asked Dr. Walker to consider those instead.

I have expressed to Dr. Walker that hearings are to be held in the locale that is affected,e.g., Pascagoula, and this should be the standard practice.

I will continue to monitor it and make sure DMR recognizes our objection to the current plan"
