ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of a judge in Montgomery, Alabama to temporarily stop lawmakers from doling out state funds for pet projects referred to as pass-through pork. The law that allowed these grants was halted because it permitted spending decisions to bypass the executive branch. A candidate for state attorney general filed the lawsuit that declared the community grant program as null and void.
