The Alabama Legislature stepped up to the plate and passed the requested bills that hopefully will keep Jefferson County out of bankruptcy. Governor Riley and the Democratic members of the House and Senate worked in concert making the special session a success. At least one Republican also supported the needed legislation. Governor Riley and the Legislature simply couldn’t afford to let Jefferson County go into bankruptcy. Had that happened, it would have been a severe blow to the entire state and one which would have had an adverse ripple effect on our governmental entities. The session – completed in five days – was a success. Now I just hope and pray that Jefferson County can get its act together and put the county’s business back on a sound fiscal footing.
