In 2011 members of the House and Senate will face the toughest financial challenges that any group of legislators has faced in recent memory. The State of Alabama is in terrible fiscal condition and the patching job that was skillfully done this year won’t work again in 2011. As they say in Barbour County, the state is “broke as a haint,” and that’s very bad news for the next Governor and Legislature.
The Republicans claim they are going to take over both houses of the Legislature. Maybe a good question for their legislative candidates would be: “what state programs do you propose eliminating outright and which ones will you cut drastically?” I suspect the answers to that question will be most interesting. But the voters need to know the answers before November.
