MONTGOMERY—An eleventh hour stand against the September 18 constitutional amendment is being held today on the steps of the Alabama Capital.
“We are oppose to this amendment because it does not address the waste and inefficiency of state government,” says Marcia Chambliss, Alabama Coordinator for Smart Girl Politics. “It gets the legislature through the next three budgets without addressing why we have this budget shortfall.”
Chambliss is joined by leaders who represent various conservative groups from across the state of Alabama. They include Becky Gerritson, President of the Wetumpka TEA Party; Eloise Zeanah, President of the Alabama Federation of Republican Women; and former Alabama State Senator John Rice, from the Alabama Foundation for Limited Government. All of these organizations are coming together under the motto of “Don’t BUST the TRUST.”
