2002 Regular Session
By: Representative Smith (39th), Chism
AN ACT TO PROHIBIT THE EXPENDITURE OF FUNDS FOR FURTHER COURT ACTION IN THE COLUMBUS SIXTEENTH SECTION CASE; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI:
SECTION 1. After July 1, 2002, no state funds shall be expended on the Sixteenth Section land case involving Columbus, Mississippi, Sixteenth Section leases, styled as Lipscomb v. Columbus Municipal Separate School District. The Legislature finds that the courts have ruled on this matter and determined that the Sixteenth Section leases in Columbus, Mississippi, are valid and further appeals are costly and not in the best interest of the state.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after July 1, 2002.
