Rep. Paul Scott (R-Grand Blanc) urges lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to approve the Teacher Quality Package

A judge in Ingham County has issued a temporary injunction which stops a recall effort against State Representative Paul Scott.   

Republican Paul Scott was targeted for recall by the Michigan Education Association. Scott is a supporter of cutting K-12 education funding and legislation which targets teachers unions. 

A petition drive collected enough signatures to place the recall on the November ballot. But Scott’s attorneys convinced the judge that petition organizers may have started collecting signatures too soon. Last week, the Michigan Court of Appeals ordered the judge to reconsider a previous decision not to halt the November recall vote.
