    I agree Senator. The taxpayers should only be funding the necessary needs of the State of Alabama to function as a State. We should not be robbing trust funds to support tree huggers and rock lovers. If these nut cases want to buy up land , then they should use their own money, not mine.
    As always is the case when we allow bank robbers and socialists to get away with one crime, we find they come back for more. What will be the next special interest project they want the people of Alabama to fund?

    I say recoup all our money from these socialists and communists and stop using tax money earned by the people against the people by locking up land that could be used by private industry to create jobs or goods and services in a free market system. The average taxpayer realizes these tree huggers will use this money to buy up land or property that otherwise would be on the real estate market for individuals and businesses and the locking up of this land will cause the cost of land to skyrocket taking it out of the future for the aveage Alabamian. Vote no and leave this money for the benefit of all the people of Alabama in the trust fund.

    The oil and gas money comes from the environment of Alabama and what a better thing to do with a portion of that money to buy land for hunting, fishing, and recreational areas for Alabama citizens. There is only so much land out there and much is being developed at a rapid pace so buying and setting aside land is a good thing that we should do for posterity. You could buy scrub land and plant it and maybe in 50-100 yrs it would be a forest but its much better to buy a standing forest and preserve it so that our the current generation can enjoy it. If you take the money for other things it will only be spent for something else and nothing to show for it. Land is forever and its our Heritage in Alabama to be good stewards of the Land for future generations..
