Bama Suit Tossed

An attempt to stop Alabama lawmakers from moving $30 million out of the fund that pays for telephone service for the deaf and into the state's education budget has been tossed out by a judge. The Alabama Dual Party Relay Board had filed the suit, saying the action was illegal. Fifteen cents a month from landline customers goes into the Dual Party Relay Fund, which pays for relay operators.
