My how things have changed for Governor Bentley…

He’s got something here and he, rightly, is going to love having people seek it out.

Alabama’s has budgeting issues….

They are apparently racism…

“I think that this is an opportunity for many of the people that have not been in the Legislature long to get a complete understanding of how the process works,” Knight said. “I think that the more you understand how you got to where we are now, you’ll find the more we have in common.”

Knight said it’s important to consider how Alabama’s history of racial strife and the one-time political domination of large landowners helped lead to some policies that handcuff state government.

“So we have to make certain that we keep that in perspective when we start making comparisons to other states,” Knight said.

“Other states have not suffered from many of the things that we suffered from in this state. So that’s just the reality. And we have to build from that and try to make those corrections.”

Those corrections, by the way, are higher taxes. That’s not happening.

Also, earmarks…

Rep. Allen Farley, R-McCalla, provided a handout showing that many other states have steered away from heavily earmarking their tax dollars since the 1950s, while Alabama has stuck to the practice.

Farley said he wanted to talk to officials from other states and see how they have fared with more flexibility in their budgeting process.

“Obviously those other states, a light bulb came on somewhere and they changed,” Farley said.

Ummm… Alabama voters and the Legislature just added another earmark 8 days ago.
