The Alabama Trust Fund (ATF) annually transfers money to the State General Fund ($84 million in FY 2010) and loans money to the State General Fund (GF) and Education Trust Fund (ETF) for proration prevention ($162 million and $437 million, respectively). Section 4 of the proposed constitutional amendment transfers $437 million to the GF from the ATF with the stated intention to provide funding to state prisons and Medicaid, although the money will be and may be used to fund other services. The State Legislature must handle the recurring budgetary problems the State has faced over the past decade, make significant reforms, and avoid temporary fixes.
