Alabama Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey stated recently that there will be legislation in the upcoming session favoring job creation and business development. She says that bills to be introduced in Legislature this spring will include a constitutional amendment giving the Governor and the Alabama Development Office more flexibility to offer incentives for economic development projects and a bill that gives tax credits to businesses hiring veterans who return from military service.
Kay also says that the state must prepare its residents to be a part of the current and future job market, and that will come about through better education. She believes that a well-trained, educated workforce will be necessary to handle the jobs required to lead Alabama into the 21st century. She also recognizes that the legislators will be facing tough economic struggles in the next session.
Kay, who has made a very good impression in her first year as Lt. Governor, also says she expects lawmakers to address constitutional reform and prison sentence reform in the session. She reminds all of us that the state simply doesn’t have any more money to continue building prisons for a growing prison population.
