----------------------------------------------------------

II. Reasons for Recommendations:

Why Vote NO on most of the amendments.  Most of the amendments increase the scope of government, and thus more regulation in the lives of individuals.

Home Rule.  A concept that sounds good on the surface, but greatly increases the amount of government regulation in our lives.  Also gives the power of governments to levy more fees on the people.  See No. 13. (Limestone County)

Provide a retirement program, thus more for the taxpayers to fund in the years to come. Numbers 2, 3, 8, 12, 15, 16, 19, 20, 25, 27 (Blount, Clark, Hale, Limestone, Madison, Mobile, Monroe, Pickens, Tuscaloosa, Walker)

Our forefathers believed that government should not be a participant in the free enterprise system.  To put funding in the hands of government officials for construction projects creates problems.  This often results in them paying for building projects that directly benefit a very few individuals, usually a lot of money is spent on a construction project to serve as a political pay off.  For example, a county government paid for a construction of a water line to the hunting lodge of State Senator Roger Bedford.  On another occasion a road was built to benefit some property owned by an Alabama State Senator. Lest we forget Senator Ray Campbell of Decatur, whose "jobs creation center" paid out large salaries to some staff, but never got anything done.  It was closed due to corruption.  See Numbers No.5, No.7, No. 18, 26. (Conecuh, Etowah, Mobile, Walker)

Should a special tax zone be set up to benefit a few?  See Amendments 6, 14, 17  (Dallas, Macon, Mobile)

Numbers 9, 11, (Hale, Limestone),  raises taxes.

St. Clair, Amendment 24.  Vote No, it sounds like the revenue will be distributed to other projects.

Walker County Amendment 26.  Gives the government too much power in regulating our lives, especially in land use and in the power of eminent domain.
