Mississippi Protects Elections From Big-Tech Billionaires

Press Releases · Apr 4, 2022

WASHINGTON — Today, Heritage Action, a conservative organization with two million grassroots activists nationwide, including thousands of Mississippians, released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson applauding Governor Reeves for signing HB 1365 into law and thanking the Mississippi legislators who voted to ban “Zuck Bucks” and protect Mississippi’s elections from outside interference.

Mississippians deserve to have fair elections free from the outside influence of Big Tech billionaires. Heritage Action thanks Governor Tate Reeves for protecting Mississippi’s elections from manipulation and private money by signing HB 1365 into law.

We applaud the hard work of the legislators who voted to advance this common-sense reform. Mississippi ranks in the top half of states on the Heritage Foundation’s Election Integrity Scorecard, and we look forward to supporting the legislature in their continued efforts to make it easy to vote and hard to cheat in Mississippi.


  • HB 1365 would prohibit state agencies and election officials from accepting funds, property or services from an individual or a nongovernmental entity for the purpose of funding election-related expenses, voter education and outreach, or voter registration.

  • Last year, Heritage Action invested an initial $10 million into a first-ever state advocacy campaign to secure and strengthen state election systems. This year, Heritage Action is continuing to work with state governments and grassroots leaders to advance conservative priorities in the states.
