Ala srapped college cash fund to get early review

Montgomery, AL – (AP) - The board of Alabama's prepaid college
tuition plan has moved up its next meeting by two weeks to talk
about the future of the financially troubled program.
The board's chairwoman, State Treasurer Kay Ivey, said Monday
the board will meet Nov. 4 instead of Nov. 18. She said that's to
get an early start on proposals to present to the Legislature for
shoring up the Prepaid Affordable College Tuition plan.
The co-founder of Save Alabama PACT, Patti Lambert, said the
change makes it difficult for parents who had made plans to be off
from work on Nov. 18 to attend the meeting. She said the group
hopes to have a large number parents at the meeting to show the
Legislature how important the issue is.
