Alabama Ethics Commission Gains Funding Guarantee
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has signed a bill that guarantees future funding for the Alabama Ethics Commission.
The new law appropriates one tenth of one percent of the state’s general fund budget to the ethics commission. Under the current proposed budget, this appropriation represents approximately $1.8 million dollars.
The appropriation provision in the new law can only be modified by a two-thirds vote of the Alabama House and Senate.
