Tonight, Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party issued the following statement upon the conclusion of Governor Bentley's State of the State Address:
"Governor Bentley tonight spoke of an Alabama with good paying jobs, excellent education opportunities and wonderful citizens. I applauded Governor Bentley for his hard work, steadfast leadership and stewardship of the State for the past 3 years. I completely agree with Governor Bentley that if Washington, D.C., wants to know how to fix the nation's budget crisis, they need to look at the examples set forth by the states and especially Alabama," Armistead said.
Armistead continued, "I also must agree with Governor Bentley's statement and reminder to Washington, D.C., that the states created the Federal Government, not the other way around. That is why I am proud to stand up with the Republican leadership in Montgomery and support an agenda that pushes back on the overreaches of the Obama Administration and an ever-growing Federal Government."
"As we begin the third legislative session with Republican majorities in Montgomery, I look forward to working with Governor Bentley and our legislative leaders to continue the effort to Right Size Government by streamlining services and agencies, cutting spending and creating an environment to grow jobs. I will also work hard day and night to make sure Alabamians know that Democrats in Montgomery have chosen to be part of the problem, and not the solution, by continuing to duck the hard debates and defend the status quo they created, instead of joining with Governor Bentley and Republicans in finding common sense solutions for our state's problems," Armistead concluded.
