Q House Bill 1643 (2016) – the K-12 appropriation bill for FY17 – prohibited the District from making payments to the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents (MASS). Is there any such prohibition against paying FY18 funds to MASS?

A No. House Bill 1502 (2017), the appropriation bill for FY18 K-12, contains no such prohibition, and the 2017 prohibition only applies to the 2017 fiscal year. (Attorney General’s Opinion to Griffin, June 9, 2017)
