Montgomery, AL – A proposed amendment to remove segregation-era language from Alabama's constitution has picked up last-minute endorsements from the Business Council of Alabama and from former Governor Don Siegelman. BCA President William Canary says the executive committee of the 5,000-member business group has approved Amendment Two. Siegelman, meanwhile, sent an e-mail to supporters across the state Monday, encouraging them to vote for the amendment. He says a "yes" vote on Amendment Two will make an important national statement about Alabama's interest in education by removing racist, segregation-era language from the state constitution.
