Roberson gets new LCB opinion: You can do what you want, executive branch can't interfere

That's the gist of a new legislative legal opinion that mining taxman Michael Roberson obtained shortly after news broke of executive branch analysis that could block an alternative to the margins tax from the ballot.

It's all about the power of the Legislature to do what it wants.

There is a real separation of powers battle brewing this session, unlike any we have seen before.

The opinion is attached.
