Siegelman Investigation Continues

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – State Senator Gerald Dial of Lineville was called before the grand jury Tuesday to discuss legislation that allowed the Talladega Superspeedway to sell alcohol on Sundays. The bill passed in 1997, when Siegelman was lieutenant governor and was presiding over the state Senate. Dial says he wasn't the sponsor of the bill, but he amended it when it got bogged down in the Senate. The senator says he was asked about the legislative process and the duties of the lieutenant governor. Tuscaloosa County Planning Director Farrington Snipes also appeared before the grand jury. He says he was asked to bring files about county road and infrastructure projects for which the county received state grants.
