Found money for states?

This week it was announced that $19.3 million of a $25.3 million allotment to the state attorney general's office from the national mortgage settlement would be used to help fund that office and county district offices from 2013 to 2015. ACPP and the Low Income Housing Coalition of Alabama are calling for the remaining $6 million to be routed to the Housing Trust Fund, which was created by the Legislature this year but not funded because of budget issues, to help provide affordable housing for the poor.

This Gadsden Times editorial calls on state leaders to use the settlement money for its stated purpose -- as compensation for those who were wronged.
