Wednesday, the Alabama Senate Finance and Taxation Education Committee approved Senate Bill 21, which would give retired educators a one-time bonus check. The bill is sponsored by state Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville.
Dial said that we should show appreciation and gratitude to the people that have educated us. We have been unable to provide them with a cost of living adjustment for some time now. We need to show that the legislature appreciates their service.
