BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - As a special session gets underway in Montgomery in hopes of helping Jefferson County with its financial woes, some commissioners are not too confident law makers will really help.
On Monday, Commission President Bettye Fine Collins said she does not think the county's legislative delegation will come together to address the problem. She adds that if the bill were to pass, it could end up hurting the county. "Would it be constitutional?" Collins asked. "If some attorney thinks it isn't good, then we're back in court paying attorneys again."
Commissioner Bobby Humphreys feels the legislature is the best way to address the problem instead of waiting on a decision from the State Supreme court. He says he feels the lawmakers could actually reach a decision. Taxpayers seem to have mixed reviews.
