Gubernatorial Candidates Throwing Out Million Dollar Plans

Alabama governor candidates are sounding off on a 1 billion dollar road plan.

The plan by democratic legislators would take 1 hundred million dollars per year for 10 years from a state savings account.

The plan is backed by both democratic candidates for governor: State Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks and Congressman Artur Davis.

On the republican side of the ballot, State Representative Robert Bentley and former two-year college Chancellor Bradley Byrne like it.

However, Greenville businessman Tim James, former Chief Justice Roy Moore, former State Agency Director Bill Johnson, and State Treasurer Kay Ivey are either opposed or urging caution.

The proposal would start a record building program when the new governor takes office.

    Of course Bradley Byrne is supporting it. He worships the ground that Bob Riley walks on. When are we going to figure out that we need very successful businessmen like Tim James in office and not just another lawyer like Bradley Byrne.
