Chaos and Compromise

University Press of Mississippi

Chapter 9 discusses an important legislative rules change (Joint Rule 20A) which critics claimed weekend the powers of rank-and-file legislators. Joint Rule 20A had no direct effect on the executive branch of government. The chapter explains how House Speaker Philip Gunn and Lt. Governor Tate Reeves pushed through the rules change during the opening day of their tenure to prohibit any legislators from trying to increase the budget of any agency without stating from what agency the increase in funding would be taken.
