Judge Throws Out Policy Banning Double-Dipping

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A Montgomery County judge has thrown out
a State Board of Education policy that would have banned Alabama
legislators from also working in the two-year college system.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick ruled Friday
afternoon that the board's decision to ban the policy known as
"double dipping" violated a state law. That law requires state
agencies to hold public hearings on policy changes and to have
those changes approved by a legislative panel.

Under the board's policy, two-year college employees would have
been prohibited from serving in the Legislature after the 2010
election.

Hardwick also threw out a board policy that would have forced
lawmakers to use vacation time to attend legislative meetings
before 2010.
