House Speaker Catherine Hanaway questions Governor Bob Holden’s plan to cut school funding if the State Legislature doesn’t approve his plan to sell future tobacco revenue proceeds to get money now. Hanaway says she wants an opinion from Attorney General Jay Nixon on whether the Holden plan is even legal.

And, she says it appears the Missouri constitution prohibits the Governor from cutting school funding.
