Spending money to defend PACT in court

Lawmakers did approve a $200,000 contact on Thursday for a Montgomery lawyer to defend Gov. Bob Riley and the state in a lawsuit over the Alabama Prepaid Affordable College Tuition Program.
Ken Wallis, legal adviser to the governor, told lawmakers that three lawsuits have been filed regarding PACT. He said they expect to have them dismissed because there has not been any harm.
Wallis said others who were sued include Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom Jr., Treasurer Kay Ivey and other members of the PACT board.
