Hearing set to challenge Gov. Bentley’s use of BP settlement money

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — A hearing is set to challenge the way Governor Bentley is using the money from the BP oil settlement.

State representative Johnny Mack Morrow and State Auditor Jim Ziegler filed a lawsuit against the governor claiming he is illegally spending the funds. They say Bentley doesn’t have authority from the state legislature.
