Video: State Supreme Court Will Hear Legislature Appeal on Education Funding Ballot Initiative
JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) -The Mississippi Supreme Court will move forward with an appeal, filed on behalf of the Legislature, to change the title on a school funding initiative on November ballots.
House Speaker Philip Gunn and Lt. Governor Tate Reeves are behind the motion.
A lower court ruled the name, Initiative 42-A that was approved lawmakers, must be changed on the ballot
Opponents say that title would confuse voters at the polls, because the citizen-led Initiative 42 is already on the ballot.
The court is speeding up its decision on whether the lower court’s ruling can be overturned because sample ballots must be given to counties 55 days before the election.
