August 16, 1988|Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. — The Mississippi Legislature today overwhelmingly approved a bill aimed at doing away with a century-old county purchasing system the FBI found was rife with corruption.

The House passed the bill 111 to 7 and the Senate 50 to 0. It now goes to Gov. Ray Mabus, who had hailed the measure as "a tremendous victory against corruption and for effective government."
