But there are threats to that beauty and to the quality of life for us as Mississippians from a gro~ng problem in our state. That problem is the careless littering and illegal dumping of wastes across this great state. Litter and illegal dumping of wastes is a serious and expen- sive problem. Each year litter and dumping injures wildlife, pollutes our land and water, destroys natural resources, damages personal property and impacts the quality of life for our citizens. Litter and il- legal dumping of wastes also hamper economic g~owth and development because it creates a negative image of Mississippi and its people. The assistance and the work of the state's Law Enforcement Community, Local Prosecutors, Elected Officials and the state's citizens are critical to clean up our state and rid it of litter and illegal diunping. We must respond to the challenge that illegal dumping presents and take the litter and dumping laws of our state seriously We need to mak( it clear that we are not willing to tolerate litter and dumping in our communi- ties and in our state. Thank you for you assis- tance in ridding our state of litter and illegal dumping and for working to make our state a better place to live for all Mis- sissippians!
