BILL CRAWFORD: Schools vs. tax cut rumble looms for Legislature

Are you ready to rumble?

In one corner stand Gov. Phil Bryant, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and their allies who want to cut taxes.

In the other corner stand the champions for fully funding the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP) for K-12 schools.

The conventional wisdom is the state budget cannot accommodate both, so all are preparing for a big fight.
