'On the Table': An overview of the Sept. 18 amendment

Should Alabama raid the state savings account or risk massive funding cuts for Medicaid, prisons and other public services? That is the uncomfortable choice facing Alabamians at a special referendum on Sept. 18, 2012. Voters will decide then on a proposed constitutional amendment to move $437.4 million over three years from the Alabama Trust Fund to the General Fund to help prop up the state's budget for non-education public services.

The amendment leaves ACPP members with another choice this summer: Should the organization support or oppose it? Members will determine the group's position at a called membership meeting on Aug. 11 in Birmingham. This fact sheet examines the historical background of the amendment, as well as the possible results of voters' acceptance or rejection of it.
