Mississippi Legislature Adjourned for 2015

Mississippi adjourned its 2015 legislative session on April 2nd without enacting any new rules for health clubs in the state.

IHRSA carefully reviewed each introduced bill, searching for legislation that would impact the health club industry either positively or negatively, prepared to notify Mississippi clubs when advocacy is needed. 

At the beginning of the 2015 session, IHRSA was ready to defend the Mississippi health club industry against potential threats regarding membership contract restrictions and sales tax impositions. However, these threats did not materialize as legislation this year.

IHRSA also sought opportunities to advance legislation that would promote healthy living and drive more members to health clubs. We hope to continue to build upon these initiatives in the 2016 session.
