Max Hyman (HIGH-man) has more from Jefferson City.
House Speaker Republican Representative Rod Jetton was one of the few voices in favor of a bill passed last year that gave one man his very own village.
Jetton said the repeal is a direct attack on village rights.
|Run Time: 00:09|
|Description: It's a villain of private property rights. There's a lot of situations around the state where these zoning boards and commissions and things manipulate the situation, play favorites to their friends or not to others.|
The bill was passed by the legislature last year which featured a last minute provision that Jetton himself included.
The Speaker of the House also said village law is something he has supported since his time as a Bollinger County Commissioner.
Jetton was one of only six representatives that voted against the repeal.
