WLOX Editorial: Time for Mississippi to do the same

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - This Friday and Saturday is the state of Mississippi's annual sales tax holiday. It's a chance to save 7% on clothing and shoes. This is a good thing, it gives parents an opportunity to save money on back to school clothes.

But we have said it before, clothes are not the only items needed as students head back to school. Many nearby states include all school supplies in the sales tax holiday. We think it's time for Mississippi to do the same.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
