Senate President Pro Tem Comments on Passage of Constitutional Amendment

Staff Report

From the Office of Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh

MONTGOMERY – Following the passage of today’s Constitutional Amendment to transfer funds from the Alabama Trust Fund to the state’s general fund, Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh issued the following statement:

“Today’s vote was an acknowledgement that we’ve made significant strides over the past two years in reforming state government and the people trust us to be good stewards of taxpayer resources. We’re working to solve complex budget issues that have been compounded by years of one-time money and excessive government spending. This transfer is a bridge to help us avoid a crash landing while we continue working to implement cost-cutting measures that will lead to a more fiscally responsible state government. Overall, I’m thankful that the people of Alabama are supportive of our efforts to continue moving the state forward.”
