The Jefferson County Commission passed their fiscal 2008 budget today. The $660 million budget cuts $23 million total for the arts (notably the Cultural Alliance) and currently vacant county positions. The Birmingham News Breaking News blog has a brief post about the vote, which was along party lines.

What are your thoughts about the budget and what it means?

I think it's absurd. One of the organizations that is going to be hurt from this cut is the Sidewalk Film fest which made profit for the city after it spent the money it was granted. It's things like this that make me want to finish school ASAP so I can get out of this state. The only thing that keeps me in AL...... well, it's definitly not the football.
