Governor Robert Bentley today released the following statement regarding today's Jefferson County Commission meeting:
"I personally met with House Speaker Mike Hubbard and President Pro Del Tem Marsh this afternoon to discuss the Jefferson County sewer crisis. All three of us are 100% committed to solving this issue in the Legislature. I commend the Jefferson County Commission for continuing to work toward a settlement agreement. My Administration and the legislative leadership stand ready to work with the rest of the State Legislature in a special session. This is a problem that can and must be solved for the good of both Jefferson County and the entire state."
