Panel rejects Ivey bid for more details on grants

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A committee of state officials has
rejected a proposal by State Treasurer Kay Ivey to give the public
more information on millions of dollars in grants handed out by
Alabama legislators.

The State Executive Commission on Community Service Grants,
meeting in Montgomery on Wednesday, approved millions of dollars in
grants for schools, volunteer fire departments and other
organizations.

But it declined to adopt Ivey's proposal to post the grants on
the Internet and give more specifics on how the money is to be
spent.

The commission chairman is Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom Jr. and members
include Ivey, Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks and state schools
Superintendent Joe Morton.
