MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Did you see the latest episode of Capitol Journal?

We covered the latest budget hearings, which included presentations from the Department of Human Resources, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the state’s district attorneys.

The presentation from DHR Commissioner Nancy Buckner was especially compelling because of her explanation of the dire personnel problems there.

State Finance Director Bill Poole joined me to discuss the state’s new innovation efforts as well as updates on ARPA funds and prison construction.

Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield explains Alabama’s economic incentives laws and what changes might be coming next session.

And Senate Majority Leader Clay Scofield talks broadband to show where we are in getting high speed internet to rural areas, plus some inside baseball with how committee chairmanships are decided.
