Ala. bond issues pending on Legislature's last day

The Alabama Legislature could authorize the borrowing of $280 million through state bond issues Monday, May 20, 2013 to finance everything from more secure school entrances to electronic tablets for students. With the Republican-controlled Legislature repeatedly making it clear that new taxes are off the table, lawmakers are increasingly turning to bond issues to provide money. Several bills will provide $30 million in bonds to pay for repairs to schools damaged by tornadoes in 2011 and 2012, including $15 million for Murphy High School in Mobile and $8 million for schools in the Tuscaloosa area.
