Alabama Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh recently stood by the proposal of using federal CARES Act money for a new state house, although he stressed that expansion of broadband access in Alabama would be a higher priority. The Republican leader of the Alabama Senate answered questions about the CARES Act proposals that Gov. Kay Ivey disparaged as a “wish list” in a statement the governor released three days prior.
Is this what the citizens of Alabama want the money the federal government sent for COVID-19 to be used for? That’s all we need — another white elephant to spend taxpayer money on.
I can’t believe this governor would not direct this money to be used to help with those in need. It’s a shame what we let politicians get away with in the name of making the state better. Were we going to stand by and let this happen and say nothing?
