Ala. PACT Board Moves Up Meeting
Montgomery, AL – The board of Alabama's prepaid college tuition plan has moved up its next meeting by two weeks to talk about the future of the financially troubled program.
The board's chairwoman, State Treasurer Kay Ivey, said Monday the board will meet Nov. 4 instead of Nov. 18. She said that's to get an early start on proposals to present to the Legislature for shoring up the Prepaid Affordable College Tuition plan.
The co-founder of Save Alabama PACT, Patti Lambert, said the change makes it difficult for parents who had made plans to be off from work on Nov. 18 to attend the meeting. She said the group hopes to have a large number parents at the meeting to show the Legislature how important the issue is.
