Gov. Directs Mabry to Move Toward 1/3 - 2/3 Split of Education Funds

JACKSONVILLE -- February 1, 2002 -- Governor Don Siegelman has directed State Finance Director Henry Mabry to "please do whatever is necessary to get Higher Education up to the 1/3 - 2/3 split in the growth in the Education Trust Fund."

In a letter to Mabry on Jan. 28, Siegelman wrote, "In addition, it does not seem fair for the teacher in-service centers to be funded out of higher education money. Please work with the House and Senate to make these adjustments in the budget as soon as possible."
