During the 2003 session, the Legislature passed HB 861, which created the Mississippi Coordinating Council for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems. The coordinating council is responsible for coordination of remote sensing and geographic information system activities within Mississippi. It is mandated to establish and enforce policies and standards that will "make it easier for remote sensing and geographic information systems around the state to share information and to facilitate cost-sharing arrangements to reduce the costs of acquiring remote sensing and geographic information system data." The coordination council's authority covers all local, regional, and state governmental agencies in Mississippi except for institutions of higher learning.
