In Mississippi, a developer may need a State Land Right-of-Way Easement or Lease (Easement/Lease) from the appropriate state agency with jurisdiction over the land, if the proposed project will be located in, on, or above state-owned real property.
[[Mississippi – Miss. Code Ann. §§ 29-1 et seq., Public Lands|Miss. Code. § 29-1-1 ]] and [[Mississippi – Miss. Code Ann. §§ 29-1 et seq., Public Lands| § 29-1-21]] give the [[Mississippi Secretary of State]] authority and management control over state lands including lands sold to the state for taxes (tax lands). With the approval of the Governor, the [[Mississippi Secretary of State]] can sell these tax lands or transfer the tax lands to any other state agency, county, municipality or subdivision of the state. [[Mississippi – Miss. Code Ann. §§ 29-1 et seq., Public Lands|Miss. Code. § 29-1-21]].
Additionally, the [[Mississippi Secretary of State]] can rent or lease all remaining lands within the agencies’ jurisdiction. [[Mississippi – Miss. Code Ann. §§ 29-1 et seq., Public Lands|Miss. Code. § 29-1-107(1)]]. Leases issued by the Secretary of State cannot exceed a period of 1 year and cannot involve hunting or fishing. [[Mississippi – Miss. Code Ann. §§ 29-1 et seq., Public Lands|Miss. Code. § 29-1-107(1)]]. However, the majority of public lands in Mississippi have been distributed to other state agencies. See [[Mississippi Public Lands By Agency Document]].

Code Ann. §§ 29-1 et seq., Public Lands|Miss. Code. § 29-1-107(2)(a)]]. The developer must submit a complete Standard Lease Application (Application) to the [[Mississippi Secretary of State]].
