JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) – Late Congressman Alan Nunnelee will continue to be remembered as state lawmakers dedicated a government agency building in his honor.
During the Mississippi legislature’s 2017 session, lawmakers passed a bill to name the Mississippi Department of Environment Quality (MDEQ) building as the Patrick Alan Nunnelee Building.
The event Thursday afternoon featured Gov. Phil Bryant, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, Speaker Philip Gunn, other officials and Nunnelee’s family.
