Nodler plan threatens school officials who disagree with him

In a recent post, I quoted Diamond R-4 Superintendent Mark Mayo from his Cat News on the district's website as claiming that Sen. Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, was threatening to file a bill which would penalize school districts that continue to fight through the courts for a larger share of state education money.
If they continue with their lawsuit, they would face the prospect of having to consolidate with other schools.
That proposal was mentioned at Monday night's Carthage R-9 Board of Education meeting, which is chronicled by Carthage Press reporter Melissa Dunson.

Can he do that? Is it possible for the legislative body to pass a bill that makes it impossible to sue the state? Has there been plenty of dialogue before he gets to this point?
Boy, this Nodler guy reminds me of a bantam rooster. Maybe he is following the footsteps of King George.
