"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

May 7, 2015 Scottsboro, Alabama - The Jackson County Legislative Delegation's 2015 Legislative Review at the Scottsboro Water Sewer & Gas Board's Operations Center.  TVA-in-lieu-of-tax discussion, funds to be returned to county commission, Discretionary Fund Committee to be cancelled. Management reform discussed for Medicaid, Mental Health, and Prisons. Governor Bentley's $541 million in tax increases not needed. "$350 million" is the amount Mr. Hanes indicated would cover the budget, not $541 million. Thoughts on ABC Store privatization.
