Legislators’ education alternative challenged in court

An Oxford school patron is asking a Hinds County judge to remove from the November ballot an alternative proposed by the Legislature to a citizen-sponsored education funding initiative.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the lawsuit was filed Tuesday in circuit court by Adrian Shipman of Oxford, a mother of two in the Oxford School District.

Shipman argues in court documents that the language recently approved by the attorney general’s office is not a true reflection of legislative intent.

Shipman argues the legislative alternative “creates significant risks of confusing the electorate.”
