Alabama Governor Bentley gives Marshall county chicken farm $5K tax dollar$ to buy light bulbs during proration

This is stuff for the Cobert Report!
Sad, but true folks…
Yes, you read that correctly.
Bear in mind also, that the state is already in a period of budgetary proration.
Alabama’s Constitution forbids debt spending, so the budget must equal – not exceed – the state’s revenue.
So, in accordance with the state’s Constitution, on March 16, 2012, Governor Robert J. Bentley declared a proration of “10.6 percent for the state General Fund for non-education services, cutting budgeted spending by $188 million because of a shortfall in expected revenues.”
Can you smell the hypocrisy cooking?
Bentley awards grant to help business upgrade lighting

MONTGOMERY – Gov. Robert Bentley awarded a $5,000 grant to help a farm business in Marshall County reduce energy consumption and save money.
The grant will help Maze Farms Inc. retrofit the current lighting system in its five poultry houses. The upgrade will include compact fluorescent bulbs, dimming controls and other enhancements to help the business reduce its utility bill.
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grant from funds made available by the U.S. Department of Energy. In addition to grants for energy conservation, ADECA administers an array programs in law enforcement and traffic safety, economic development, workforce development, water resources and recreation development.
Bentley notified Dennis Maze that the grant had been approved.
