House approves houseboat ban 

The Alabama House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday banning houseboats and other large vessels on Alabama lakes .  The new law would only ban the boats on lakes Weiss, Harris and Martin lakes.  The original bill would have affected nine Alabama lakes, but the substitute bill was passed after public outcry from boat  and marina owners across the state.  Governor Bob Riley,  in Heflin Thursday evening for a campaign rally,  said he supports the compromise.   The bill would grandfather houseboats that are currently on the lakes.  It bans houseboats longer than 30 feet 6 inches from the lakes and would immediately ban all boats longer than 26 feet 11 inches which can exceed 60 mile per hour.  Rep. Randy Wood of Anniston said he voted in favor of the bill because Logan Martin was excluded in the legislation.  The bill now goes to the senate where it is expected to first head to the senate judiciary committee.


Governor still pushing for better tax cut legislation 

While the legislature has passed a slimmed down version of the governors proposed income tax cuts,  the governor says the fight is not over.  Governor Riley was in Heflin Thursday evening  and said that he is turning his attention during the next week to the battle in the senate over tax breaks for working Alabamians.  The governor said that the legislature is taking the wrong road with their revenue growth projections  projecting growth that is not realistic and wise.  The legislatures projections were used in support of the legislatures education spending bills passed earlier this session.


Governor upset over legislatures failure to fund school improvements 

Governor Bob Riley says he cannot understand the legislatures reasoning in not funding badly needed infrastructure improvements of our states public schools.  The governor, in Heflin Thursday for a campaign rally,  said a case in point is a school in nearby Cherokee county where the school is a virtual accident waiting to happen for students..  The governor had visited the school in Centre earlier this year calling for the legislature to take action, a call which the governor said fell on deaf ears.
