$54,844,061 per day;

$2,285,170 per hour;

Spend-O-Meter Methodology 

The Mississippi Spend-O-Meter is based on the total amount of $20,018,082,260 appropriated by the state legislature during the 2014 Regular Session for the 2015 fiscal year, which ends June 30, 2015.

These funds were appropriated from the state General Fund, state Special Funds, and federal funds that go to or through state agencies. The amount above does not include (a) any local spending, including education spending derived from local tax sources; or (b) federal funds that do not go through state agencies (Social Security, Medicare, agriculture subsidies, military facilities and personnel, etc.).

The Spend-O-Meter calculates the amount spent since 12:00 midnight on July 1, 2014. It calculates the amount based on the viewer's clock time. Viewers with incorrect time settings may see inaccurate numbers.
