Governor signs disclosure bill on state plane

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley has signed legislation that requires Alabama governors to use the internet to report details about their use of state aircraft and expenditures from their office's contingency fund.

Riley has done that voluntarily since taking office in 2003. He said the new law will make sure future governors continue the disclosure.

Riley signed the law Friday while standing in front of a state plane in Montgomery. He was joined by the bill's sponsor, Republican Rep. Mac McCutcheon of Capshaw.

Immediately after the ceremony, Riley boarded the plane to fly to Spanish Fort, where he signed another bill. It allows a state-run veterans cemetery to be built across from Blakeley State Park in Spanish Fort.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
