ST. THOMAS - The 30th Legislature is revising budgets for some members of the Senate majority after a legal review called the allotments into question.
Senate President Shawn-Michael Malone announced the revisions in a press release:
"The Chief Legal Counsel was directed to review existing laws governing senatorial allotments and determined two statutes governing the subject were contradictory. This experience reaffirms my contention that it is urgent for the Legislature to review existing laws and remove contradicting measures that were not removed when laws were updated throughout the years. I look forward to working with my colleagues to enact clarifying language as we move forward in the future."
