Sometimes laws become outdated and begin to have negative consequences for the people they were originally meant to help. When that happens, it becomes necessary to vote out the old law to make way for an improved system.
It’s a situation dozens of cities around Alabama are facing, and we need the public’s help to change it. A decades-old provision deep within Alabama’s legal system requires certain municipal governments go into debt and pay interest when they want to take on specific capital projects like building new parks and roads. It means some cities must borrow money with interest to build a fire station rather than pay for it with their revenues.
