Legal battle continues between House Speaker and MS lawmaker

Attorneys for the Mississippi House speaker say it doesn’t matter that bills were read aloud at a super-fast pace during a legislative dispute.

They say the important thing is that Speaker Philip Gunn fulfilled the state constitutional requirement to have them read out loud when a House member requested it…

…They also say legislative disputes must be resolved within the Legislature, not by the courts.

Hughes must respond by June 21, and justices will hear arguments July 19.
