Overstepping bounds: Lawmakers on both sides of aisle say Gov. Nixon's recent decision to ignore a section of bill is an "unprecedented power grab"

From the Springfield News Leader: Jefferson City -- "Gov. Jay Nixon delivered a swift verdict when presented with a recent budget bill by legislators. He signed it into law, then he immediately judged a section on school funding to be unconstitutional and declared he would not follow it. Nixon's action appears to be unprecedented among recent Missouri governors.."

The story continues: " "It rocks the very nature of our foundation of a state, and I don't think I'm speaking in hyperbole," said Sen. Jason Crowell, R-Cape Girardeau.

That foundation to which Crowell refers is the constitutional separation of powers among the three branches of government. It is a basic principle of American civics that the legislative branch makes laws, the executive branch enforces laws and the judicial branch interprets laws.

"We now have a governor who thinks he's the judiciary as well," Crowell said."
