US Supreme Court May Rule For Missouri Church Over State Funding

WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court is signaling that it’ll rule for a Columbia, Missouri, church that wants state money to put a soft surface on its preschool playground.
The case was argued before the justices Wednesday – and it’s being closely watched by proponents of school vouchers.
During arguments, liberal and conservative justices alike seem troubled by Missouri’s decision to exclude the church from a grant program that pays for playground surfaces made of recycled tires.
The court doesn’t appear ready to scuttle the case – even after Missouri Governor Eric Greitens announced last week that he was changing the policy that said churches couldn’t participate in the program.
