Alabama Democratic Party Chairman Redding Pitt is supporting Republican Governor Bob Riley's one-point-two billion dollars tax and accountability plan.
He's urging other Democrats to vote for it September Ninth. Pitt's comments at a forum yesterday were in contrast to Alabama Republican Party Chairman Marty Connors, who said he does not plan to vote for the plan and that a majority of GOP county chairmen and state Republican Executive Committee members are opposed to it. Connors said a big part of their objection is that Riley's plan involves too much, too soon. Riley's plan would phase in state and local tax increases over four years.
