STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR


On Supreme Court decision in Partnership Case

 

“The Supreme Court’s near-unanimous decision in the Partnership case emphatically confirms what has always been obvious – only the Mississippi Legislature can appropriate the state’s money. A local judge and the Attorney General have no power to give taxpayer money to a private charity.

 

It’s a shame it look a long, drawn-out lawsuit to stop this illegal and unconstitutional diversion of taxpayer money.”
