Lt. Governor Ivey Supports Governor Bentley’s Efforts to Improve State Government and Create Jobs

Staff Report

MONTGOMERY, Alabama (July 19, 2012)

Under his leadership, Governor Bentley has moved state government in the right direction through his efforts to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency.  Remarkably, he and the leadership of the Alabama Legislature are on track toward a billion dollars in savings for the hard-working taxpayers of Alabama.  This is a result of the combined leadership of the Governor, Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh and House Speaker Mike Hubbard.  When it comes to cutting costs in state government, it’s easy to talk the talk.  But these results show our progress and prove our commitment to an efficient and accountable government that maximizes every tax dollar. While cutting cost is important, it is essential that we continue our number one mission of creating jobs in Alabama.  This is evident by announcements such as the Airbus facility soon to be built in Mobile, Alabama.
