Reeve’s partial veto ruled unconstitutional by Chancery Court Judge
JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) – A partial veto by Governor Tate Reeves is shot down in court.
The Hinds County Chancery Court ruled the governor’s partial veto unconstitutional.
State House Speaker Philip Gunn sued after Reeves vetoed House Bill 1782, which deals with how CARES Act money is distributed.
Reeves said the CARES Act included $2 million for a hospital that has been closed for years, which prompted his partial veto.
With the court’s ruling Monday, the legislation is passed in its entirety.
Reeves is appealing Monday’s decision.
