06/27/2014 – Capitol Report for June 27th, 2014 – Sen. Roger Bedford

leave a comment »

It was really a thrill to recently see so many World War II Fighter Planes fly into the Muscle Shoals airport. It was great to see a piece of history up close and to remember how important some of those aircrafts were in preserving our freedoms. We must never forget that freedom is not free and our veterans have served with distinction and continue to do so with great bravery to preserve the freedoms which we enjoy here in America.

So, when you see a veteran tell them thank you for a job well done.

I’m also very disappointed to see the unfolding scandal concerning the lack of proper health care made available to our veterans. They have put their life on the line to protect us and they deserve good quality health care when they return. President Obama needs to clean house as does Governor Bentley if they find these type of programs and\or lack of care occurred here in Alabama. Alabama veterans are some of the first to volunteer to protect our country and they deserve good quality health care when they get home. Veteran’s administration health care delivery system apparently has failed to meet the needs of our veterans in a timely manner and I think those who are responsible should be held accountable for this lapse in judgment.

It was certainly a pleasure to travel to Hamilton for the grand re-opening for the downtown renovation project. It was a very well attended event and one which everyone was looking forward to seeing accomplished. If you haven’t been through downtown Hamilton lately, please take the time to do it and see all the beautiful sidewalk work and lighting. I hope this will encourage more people to shop at home. My congratulations go out to the mayor, city council, chamber of commerce and the local merchants for their leadership in making this happen.

It was a lot of fun to attend the Hamilton Bass Master Youth Fishing Contest. This event takes place at the Marion County Lake each year and it is a wonderful opportunity to highlight to our young children the fun of fishing. It also provides family time for young people and their families to work together on a common goal on enjoying the outdoors while catching fish. I saw a lot of bright eyes when our young anglers were weighing in brim, catfish and bass that they had caught in the lake.

While on the subject of grants, it was certainly a pleasure to be in Red Bay and Russellville on Friday to present Franklin County TVA in-lieu of tax service grants. These grants are applicable to all Franklin County and it is a pleasure for me, working with Johnny Mac Morrow, to have presented over $ 882,000 worth of grants in Franklin County alone. The following grants were awarded; Vina High School $1200, City of Red Bay Sewer $2,800, Red Bay High School Cheerleaders $500, Burnout Fire Department Parking Lot Project $2500, Vina Fire Department Annual Car Show $500, Town of Vina $500 for an outdoor sign for City Hall, $500 to the Red Bay High School FFA State Convention and $3,200 to BCDA for new radios for trucks.

I am pleased to announce that the Alabama Department of Transportation will accept bids on June 27th for the following important highway projects in our Senate District. In Colbert County the highway work will be on the resurfacing and traffic striping on State Road 247 from the Franklin County line to mile post 15.0.

In Fayette County the project is slide correction and minor structure placement on County Road 26 approximately 1.96 miles south of State Road 18.

In Franklin County there will be a resurfacing and traffic striping project on County Road 23 from State Road 24 to State Road 247.

I will continue to work hard for better and safer roads. These roads help with job creation and a better quality of life.

What an honor to have Jim Porter, President of the National Rifle Association attend the reception held at the lovely home of Johnny Mack and Martha Morrow in Red Bay. It was a great time for local folks to meet Jim Porter of Birmingham and learn the importance of the National Rifle Association.

It became clear during the meeting that, not only does the National Rifle Association help protect our 2nd Amendment Rights and hunting rights here in Alabama and across the nation, but they have also been helpful in bringing jobs to Alabama. In particular I’m referring to the 2000 new jobs that came to North Alabama when Alabama was selected by Remington arms maker to move their factory here. Jim Porter, who was born in Florence and now lives in Birmingham, had the opportunity as President of the National Rifle Association to tell gun manufactures and firearm related industries like Remington that Alabama, not only has an excellent workforce and a pro-business environment, but that they are also largely pro-gun. This can mean thousands of additional jobs coming to Alabama in the future.

You may rest assured that I spent some time bending Mr. Porter’s ear about bringing those jobs here to Northwest Alabama. He is certainly a fine gentlemen and I am proud to have him as the President of the National Rifle Association.

Jim also took the time to be the Grand Marshall of the 2nd Annual Hodges Equestrian Rodeo. If you have not been to Hodges, you are missing a good time when it comes to riding horses and enjoying the outdoors. The Equestrian, which is eco friendly, has 27 miles of GPS trails which take you past 8 different waterfalls. My wife Maudie and I enoyed hiking part of the trail with Mr. Porter and his sweet wife, along with Representative Johnny Mack Morrow and Martha Morrow. We are blessed to have so many wonderful natural resources here in Northwest Alabama that we must remember that God expects us to be good stewards of them.

I am proud to be a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment and to support responsible gun ownership. I am honored that the National Rifle Association is again supporting me for re-election.

This past week I also had the opportunity to attend the Alabama Coal Association meeting in Birmingham. As you may know, the Alabama Coal Association is literally under assault from over regulation out of Washington, D.C. I personally think that President Obama is wrong to be hurting the coal industry. It provides over 15,000 direct jobs here in Alabama and also produces millions of dollars in taxes to benefit our economy. The coal industry has been an important part of Northwest Alabama for over 100 years including the under ground mines that were in Brilliant, and most recently in Berry Alabama. I remember, Mr. Gann of Brilliant use to give a way petrified tree tie tacks years ago. I’m honored to have a small collection of them as he was a great friend and a strong promoter of Brilliant and the surrounding area.

You may rest assured that I will continue to work to protect our jobs here in Alabama, which also helps promote energy independence.

On a related item, we had a very good meeting concerning the Oil Sands deposits here in Northwest Alabama this past week. It was hosted by the Colbert County Extension office. The Geologist from the State of Alabama as well as the officials from the Alabama Department of Environmental Management came to explain the permitting process concerning both waste water and air discharges. I thought it was a very fair, well balanced meeting which allowed me and other concerned citizens to learn more about the facts on the process of the extraction of the oil as well as the permitting process. This is an issue that I encourage you to become better informed on. It is estimated that the Alabama oil deposits here in Northwest Alabama could equal as much as 7.5 billion barrels worth of oil, now while all of us would like to be energy independent from mid-east oil, as well as create hundreds of good paying jobs, there is a right way to do this and a wrong way to do this. We must also be good stewards of the beautiful environment that God has blessed us with.

It is my hope that we can develop enough information both at the state and local level, as well as the federal level, to find out what is the right way to approach this issue. We do not want to be a dumping ground for big, international business that comes in with no respect to local property rights and traditions. As I have mentioned earlier, we are blessed with a beautiful environment here in Northwest Alabama and we have got to find a fair and balanced approach to creating jobs and protecting our environment. If you have any information you would like to share with me on this important issue or any other issues of concern to you, you may contact me at the address and numbers listed below.

09/26/2013 – Congressman Robert Aderholt / Defunding Obamacare, Keeping the Government Running

leave a comment »

The following is a Press Release from:
Congressman Robert Aderholt – Representing Alabama’s 4th District In Washington, D.C.

Defunding Obamacare, Keeping the Government Running
With October just around the corner, discussions in Washington over the past few weeks have focused on the impending implementation of Obamacare and the ever-nearing end of the fiscal year.

Even some democrats have said that the President’s health care law is a train wreck. It’s bad for Alabama families, it’s bad for small businesses, it’s bad for doctors and hospitals and it’s bad for our nation’s economy. That’s why when it came to the House floor for a vote in 2009, I voted against it. Since then I along with my Republican colleagues in the House have voted nearly 40 times to repeal, replace, dismantle or defund all or portions of Obamacare and every time the Senate has failed to act.

As you know, September 30th is the last day of the fiscal year—meaning the government will shut down on October 1st unless legislation, known as a Continuing Resolution (CR) is passed extending funding for federal operations.

Last week, with my strong support the House passed H.J.Res. 59, a Continuing Resolution that would keep the government running through December 15th and defund Obamacare.

On September 20th, the House did our job and now it is time for the Senate to do theirs and show the American people where they stand. It appears that the House will be in session in Washington throughout the weekend in hopes the Senate will finally act and we can get this done. As the clock ticks us days closer to the implementation of Obamacare and the end of the fiscal year, the time for the Senate to take real action is now—no more stalling, no more gimmicks.

Syria Update
As you are aware over the last few weeks, President Obama concluded that President Bashar al-Assad is in possession of and used chemical weapons against his own people in Syria. This situation brought great concern to the international community.

Instead of building an international coalition of allies willing to stand together against Syria’s action, President Obama decided to pursue unilateral military action that would have left the United States isolated in our approach in the Middle East. The President did not make a very clear case to the American people or to Congress as to why such action was warranted or how it would advance the interests of the United States.

After President Obama called on Congress to vote on a resolution authorizing military action in Syria, my colleagues and I heard overwhelmingly from folks across Alabama and the rest of the country that they did not want to see the United States getting involved in Syria. I could not have agreed more. Though no one wants to see chemical weapons in the hands of unpredictable leaders in hostile regions, it is unclear who is behind these rebel groups.

As you know, Congress never took that vote, because as President Obama was trying to make his case for military action leaders of other nations were working on diplomatic solutions to remove chemical weapons from Syria. President Putin of Russia proposed putting Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons under international control and President Assad has been amenable to that idea.

Since then, President Assad has openly admitted Syria is in possession of chemical weapons and Secretary of State John Kerry had been involved in diplomatic negotiations with Syrian officials and others in the international community. As this process continues, it is critical that international officials trust, but verify the existence and whereabouts of Syria’s chemical weapons and ensure that they are not only removed from Syria, but also secured from getting in the wrong hands.

Though the situation is not fully resolved yet, it seems as though it will be in the very near future and I am pleased it is being done through diplomatic means, rather than with military involvement.

Remembering 9/11
It has been twelve years since a group determined through hate made a cowardly attack on the United States that killed so many innocent Americans who were just trying to do their jobs. Last year, we lost four more Americans at the hands of terrorists and extremists through an attack on our Embassy in Benghazi, Libya.

We must never forget the victims of these attacks and the families and friends they left behind. While we have been tested by these senseless acts of violence, our resiliency and resolve will never waiver and America continues to shine as a beacon of freedom around the world.

02/24/2012 – Capitol Report – Senator Roger Bedford

leave a comment »

Capitol Report from Roger Bedford, 2-24-2012

As more details of Republican Governor Bentley’s proposed budget becomes available more opposition mounts. As you know we’ve had education dollars ear marked for education to help all the public schools in Alabama. Governor Bentley proposed to divert money ear marked for education to help pay for the General Fund. That money will come from dollars normally going to the class rooms and be spent instead on feeding State prisoners.

He also propose shifting 185 million in Medicaid cost to be paid for with education dollars instead of General Fund dollars. He proposes transferring 45 million in tax revenue from education to the General Fund to help other State agencies. However, none of this is creating jobs, in fact it’s causing continued lose of positions. Last year the Republican’s legislative agenda cost the jobs of approximately 2,200 teachers and State employees. This year the Republican Governor’s proposed 5.4 billion education budget would cut 1,381 teachers and administrative positions in public schools. It also cuts spending for community colleges and universities. We are starting to see these cuts affect important State services such as the Alabama State Forestry Commission. This is a State wide effort to prevent and control forest fires as well as promote forestry. State Forester Linda Casey says she has 92 person fire crews spread across 67 counties. Ideally, she would have 175 fire crews, which would support our local volunteer fire departments. In the area where the tornados hit us in April 2011, there are literally tens of thousands of fallen trees on the ground. With this much tonnage of fiber on the ground the threat of wild fires has increased greatly. We must do all that we can to support our volunteer fire departments.

,I’m pleased to report that the Alabama unemployment rate dropped to 8.1 percent in December, down from 8.7 percent in November. While some of those jobs are obviously seasonal with the Christmas shopping demanding that stores hire more sales help, but we are moving in the right direction. The national average was 8.5 percent in December. I am hopeful that this trend will continue and we’ll see more jobs coming into Alabama, especially with the estimated 2,000 workers that will be going to work at NaviStar. In fact, in the last three months in Alabama we’ve seen an overall drop in our unemployment rate of 1.7 percent. I continue to encourage everyone to shop locally so that our tax dollars can turn over more in our local communities.

I will once again this year attempt to crack down on the illegal use of crystal meth in Alabama. The key to this is passing a law to put pseudoephedrian products behind the counter as a controlled substance. Mississippi has done this and it has worked as it has Oregon. You can not make crystal meth without pseudoephedrain.

To many people are addicted to this dangerous drug and it is causing millions of dollars of damage throughout all 67 counties. Oregon and Mississippi have seen dramatic drops in the use of crystal meths manufacturing and crimes since they passed this type of law. While I have pre-filed the bill I have written the other 34 Senators telling them that I will reintroduce the bill during the next session so hopefully all 35 Senators can co-sponsor and pass this bill. While I realize the passage will be opposed by drug companies in the Alabama Retail Association as it was last year when they successfully killed it , I’m hopeful that we will be able to pass this important law this year, cracking down on crime and making our neighbors safer.

I am pleased to announce that the City of Russellville has been awarded a Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant in the amount of $14,660.00. This grant was awarded to purchase a Live Scan Fingerprint System for the Russellville Police Department. This system electorally captures fingerprints and replaces the former ink method. The Live Scan system can be used as a mobile device as well. It will be beneficial in assisting the Police Department with a nationwide fingerprint data base that they can use for research in identifying individuals throughout the United States.

J. Walter Wood, Jr. , Executive Director for The State of Alabama Department of Youth Services (DYS) recently informed me that the DYS has awarded diversion grant funding for the implementation of several community-based programs that will benefit youth in our Senate District. This new, competitive and accountability based process, is the result of a comprehensive strategic planning effort by DYS to increase the ability of local jurisdictions to provide more effective and less costly diversions services to at risk youth in Alabama. DYS has also provided great financial support to our local juvenile detention center. This monetary support not only helps DYS fulfill it’s goals and objectives, but also provides vital resources for our area. The H.O.P.E Center received $125,900. Colbert-Lauderdale Attention Home, Inc. received $125,000. The Mitnick Wilderness Program was awarded $350,000 and the Tennessee Valley Juvenile Detention Facility was awarded $277,736. These grants are very beneficial to these programs and will provide much needed funding. You may rest assured I will continue to support and promote effective programming such as these in our Senate District.

I am happy to report to you several of the grants that have been presented recently throughout our Senate District. $1000 to Fayette County Fast Pitch Softball team, $900 to the Franklin County 4-H Program, $600 to the Franklin County Schools speech and language program, $1000 to the Franklin County Pre-School Special Education Program, $1000 to Russellville High School Band, $1000 For Lamar County High School Baseball Program, $1000 to the Jill Butler Lares Memorial Education Scholarship through Athens State University, $1000 to Haleyville boys basketball, $1000 to the BayTree Council for Performing Arts in Red Bay, $500 for Phil Campbell Elementary School annual staff, $1000 to Phil Campbell High School basketball program, $1000 to East Franklin Jr. High School’s softball team, $1000 for Russellville Boys Basketball program, $1000 to Franklin County Archives for the restoration of the Sidney A. Jones cabin, $1000 to Russellville High School Golf Team, $2000 for the Franklin County SPAN Program, $2500 to Belgreen High School’s Music Department, $1500 for Reins of Life Youth Ranch, $1000 for Russellville Fire Department, $1000 for Russellville Tennis Team, $700 for Tharptown National Honor Society, $1000 to Fayette County High School Golf Team, $250 to Red Bay Jr. High Basketball Team, $1000 to Vina Youth League Basketball, $1147.80 to Vina Girls Basketball Program, $1000 to the Town of Vina’s Economic Development Program, and $1000 for Red Bay High School’s Newspapers in Education Program.

I would like to take a moment and express my heartfelt gratitude for all the thoughts and prayers for my family for the loss of my Mother, Jane Ray Bonds Bedford. We were blessed to have her for 78 years. She was a beautiful, fine lady and will be greatly missed. Your kindness and sympathies were greatly appreciated.

As always if I can be of any assistance to you do not hesitate to give me a call.
