MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Two former members of Gov. Bob Riley's administration will receive $195 per hour for helping oversee money that Alabama gets from a federal economic stimulus package.
An emergency contract signed by the governor provides for Drayton Nabers and David Perry of the Maynard, Cooper & Gale law firm in Birmingham to receive the payments for two months.
Paralegals from the law firm will receive $85 per hour.
The contract provides for a maximum of $50,000 to be paid for work through March 26.
Nabers was Riley's state finance director from 2003 to 2004, when Riley appointed him to be chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
Perry was an assistant finance director in 2003-2004.
