Bond commission vote may spur Alabama hospital sale

Associated Press, December 24, 2009

An Alabama commission headed by the governor took action this week that could clear the way for the state to sell the almost 150-year-old Bryce Hospital in Tuscaloosa to the University of Alabama. The Amendment 666 Bond Commission voted to authorize the state Finance Department to sell up to $139 million in state bonds for economic development. Commission members did not say what projects might be funded with the money, but part of the funds could be used to help fund the building of a new mental hospital if the Bryce property is sold.
