Legislature Faces Supreme Court Scrutiny - Funding In Doubt

The state legislature faced their first legal challenge, today. A new revenue bill seeking over 200 million dollars in additional Revenue is being challenged by the tobacco industry and retailers. The suit claims that the revenue measure violated three points of the state constitution. The plaintiffs allege that it was;
1. neither a bill originated in the House of Representatives,
2. nor receive 75% support in both houses, 
3. nor was passed before the last five days of the legislative session.
