(p.59) Chapter 6 Executive–Legislative Conflict under Fordice
Chaos and Compromise

Brian Pugh

University Press of Mississippi

This Chapter discusses, for the most part, Governor Kirk Fordice, the first Republican Governor since Reconstruction, and his struggles with the Democrats that dominated both the Mississippi House and Mississippi Senate. It shows how the legislature disregarded Fordice’s conservative agenda. Chapter 6 looks at how separation of powers became an issue yet again between the executive and legislative branch, which forced the judicial branch to intervene once more in the case Fordice v. Bryan (1995)

Keywords:   Governor Kirk Fordice, Separation of Powers, Fordice vs. Bryan (1995), Senator Hob Bryan, Conservative Agenda
