Officials from the Lee’s Summit and Liberty School Districts are filing suit against the State over Governor Bob Holden’s withholding of money that had already been appropriated for public schools. Governor’s Spokesman Mary Still says that while the Governor didn’t want to have to withhold, he does have the constitutional right to take that action and doesn’t believe money spent fighting a lawsuit is not money well spent. The Legislature holds its annual veto session next month. Governor Holden has said he’ll also call a special session at that time to have lawmakers consider spending more money on education.
