Governor Riley says that if Alabama ends up with another budget surplus in the next fiscal year, he'd like to return the money to Alabama citizens.
Riley is working on the fiscal 2007 state budgets that he will present to the Legislature next month. The governor told the Montgomery County Republican Club tonight that if there is any money left after the budgets are built, he'd wants to return it to Alabama families.
Riley said it's too early to say whether there will be a surplus. And no decision has been made on how to return it to Alabama citizens.
State government ended fiscal 2005 on September 30th with a 299 (M) million dollar budget surplus.
