- lawmakers throughout the state- are hoping they - can all work together - to get- their bills passed into - law in the 2019 mississippi - legislative session set to- open next tuesday.- news 25's andrew scherer spoke- to local state- lawmakers and residents to see- what's topping their- thoughts this year- - the 2019 state legislative- session doesn't open until next- tuesday, but state senator- philip moran has already filed- several bills focusing on - education and pay raises for- mississippi's teachers.

- state senator philip moran, - district 46: " they need more.

That is a very tough job.

My- hats are off to them, for a - teacher in a classroom with 30- to 31 kids, they have - their hands full and they - deserve more."

And this south mississippi stat- lawmaker is hoping for- somewhat of a repeat -- at least when it comes to - getting things done this- session.- moran says he has plenty of - confidence in our state's - lawmakers, pointing to 2018 as- one of the most successful- years in the state's legislativ- history.- state senator philip moran, - district 46: " this special session that took place back in- the fall is without a doubt, th- most beneficial special session- that has ever - taken place in the history of - our state."

As evidenced by three milestone- pieces of legislation that- passed, all serving a different- purpose,- including the allocation of the- state's bp settlement - funds, with 75 percent of it- staying in south- mississippi....and- the infrastructure modernizatio- act, a measure- that will make way for our- state's roads by receiving- additional funding from use tax- &lt;nats of car> - andrew scherer, news 25: " mississippi residents will no - longer have to drive- across state lines just to play- the powerball or mega millions,- with the states first lottery - system expected to be ready by- the end of this year."

State senator philip moran, - district 46: " we're all lookin forward to it, people - are excited about it, people- call and ask about it everyday.- they're tired of driving- out of state to buy a 1 dollar- and 2 dollar ticket."

And many mississippians,- including karl jackson of - gulfport, agree the lottery has- been been long overdue in our - state, which was one of only si- states without a lottery system- before the bill passed last - year.

- karl jackson, gulfport resident- " if we got billions or thousands of people driving to- louisiana that live in this - state, and giving that state- money, it doesn't make sense, i- doesn't add up."

State senator moran tells news- 25, the scratch offs, - pick 3, pick 5, and mississippi- lottery will be all be ready- first, as they will be run by - the state.- the state has applied to join - the 44 other states who are - apart of the powerball and- mega-millions.- in bay st.
