Bham mayor Langford placed on fed's exclusion list

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford has been placed on the federal government's Excluded Parties list and can no longer conduct business with federal agencies.

Langford is barred from signing federal grant applications or entering into agreements that involve federal money.

The mayor, Montgomery investment banker Bill Blount, and lobbyist Al LaPierre are named in a 101-count indictment charging them with conspiracy and bribery. The three men deny wrongdoing and are scheduled for trial Aug. 31.

Blount, his firm Blount Parrish & Co., and LaPierre also were placed on the Excluded Parties List. Environmental Protection Agency spokesman Dale Kemery said the decision to suspend the mayor's signing authority was made after an EPA lawyer in Atlanta forwarded the case to EPA investigators in Washington.
