Lt. Gov. Reeves not surprised by MAEP ruling

Former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove represented them.

Reeves called the suit frivolous.

“The Legislature has to create a budget each and every year and we have to live within our means and we have to invest resources that we have accordingly,” Reeves said. “So, I wasn’t terribly surprised by the ruling. And I will tell you that I’m proud of the fact that over the last four years, we’ve increased funding for public education by nearly $400 million a year.”
