Acadome Resolution Headed to Riley's Desk
In a 30 to 22 vote, the House passed a resolution that the Senate passed on a voice voted during the first legislative day. The trustees recently voted to rename the Acadome after the university coaches with the most wins: Charles "C.J." Dunn and James V. Oliver.
Reed is a top official with the Alabama Democratic Party and the Alabama Education Association. He and the university have been at odds over the Acadome's name since May 2008, when trustees voted to remove Reed's name from the arena. A similar resolution was passed last year, but was vetoed by Gov. Bob Riley.
