MONTGOMERY (AP) — A Montgomery judge has postponed a decision until this afternoon on whether to continue blocking the governor from signing a private school tax credit bill.
Circuit Court Judge Charles Price held a hearing this morning on whether to continue a temporary restraining order that he issued Tuesday, but he delayed a decision until the afternoon.
The judge's delay is to allow him time to consider a motion to dismiss filed by the state attorney general.
The Alabama Education Association is suing state officials to try to keep the governor from signing a bill to provide tax credits to parents who choose to send their children in private schools rather than failing public schools.
Court is scheduled to resume at 1:30 p.m.
