Gov. Bob Riley and Attorney General Troy King are asking the Alabama Supreme Court to stop the distribution of millions of dollars in grant money by state lawmakers. The legislature created a group made up of officials from other executive branch offices to oversee the community service grant program. But the Governor and Attorney General say the new program is unconstitutional. Lawmakers want the grants distributed before the end of the fiscal year and the November elections. The questions surrounding the program will be examined.
