The Federalist Society will be meeting on Tuesday February 9 at 7:30 a.m. at the Capitol Club in Jackson. The topic for discussion will involve the latest dispute between the MS Supreme Court and Governor Haley Barbour over the ability for the executive branch to execute its constitutionally mandated duty to balance the budget by cutting, in part, budgetary allocations to the judicial branch in proportion to other agencies.

Speaking to the group will be former MSSC Justice Ed Pittman (representing the Court’s point of view) and well known author and former gubernatorial Chief of Staff Andy Taggart (representing the Executive Branch’s point of view). It should be a very interested and spirited dialogue.
