Riley to Form Committee

By  | 

Riley made the announcement Friday after addressing the YMCA Youth Legislature at the Capitol.

Riley says the committee will include Paul Hubbert of the Alabama Education Association, Mac McArthur of the Alabama State Employees Association, state pension fund chief David Bronner, state Finance Director Drayton Nabers, three or four business people, and three or four legislators.

The governor made "government accountability" legislation the focal point of the current legislative session, but many of his proposals affecting public employees' benefits have been killed by legislative committees.
