Capitol to stay open as all other Mississippi government offices close due to weather

As wintery weather hits the state, all government offices except one will be closed on Monday.

The outlier is the Mississippi State Capitol as lawmakers in both the House and the Senate are scheduled to gavel in at 4 p.m. for week three of the legislative session.
