JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi Banking Commissioner Jerry Wilson says the agency has outgrown its state office building space and needs to move.

Wilson says he is looking for around 12,000 square feet and 85 parking spaces.

The Department of Banking and Consumer Finance is currently located in the Woolfolk State Office Building across the street from the state Capitol.

Wilson tells the Mississippi Business Journal ( ) the department has no special need to be near the Capitol.

A Request for Proposals with a deadline of 5 p.m. Tuesday specifies lease space available in Hinds, Rankin or Madison counties.

Wilson says the agency needs more space to accommodate the work of state bank examiners who will be reviewing banking records and documents remotely. Until now, the examiners would visit the individual state-chartered banks.
