GOP Is Poised To Drop DROP This Week

I’m hearing reports from multiple sources who say the DROP bill will be on the Governor’s desk by Thursday of this week.  The Governor’s proposed budget hinges on the elimination of the DROP program to avoid layoffs.  For a good review of what the DROP program is and why it needs to be repealed, check out this fact sheet from the ALGOP.  The Alabama Policy Institute also has a good comprehensive study on the program.
