Ala. Speaker Sends $17,797 From Campaign To State

Mike Hubbard
House Speaker Mike Hubbard says he's assured the governor that the Legislature will make sure Alabama is competitive for the Boeing 777X aircraft assembly plant.

Republican House Speaker Mike Hubbard recently transferred nearly $18,000 from his campaign fund to the state treasury.

Hubbard said he made the transfer of $17,797 because the campaign rules are not clear and he wanted to be extra careful.

His campaign received the $17,797 in August from a political action committee that Hubbard operated for years. A letter accompanying the transfer to the state said the campaign finance law is vague and the contribution from the Network PAC may be "potentially inappropriate." It said the money couldn't be returned to the PAC because Hubbard closed it shortly after making the donation. The letter says state law allows the issue to be resolved by donating the money to the state.

Hubbard reported the transfer on his latest campaign finance form.
