Telephone lines were open for audience comments. Mr. Barrow talked via telephone from Mobile, Alabama, about a statewide vote on tax increases in Alabama the previous day. The governor proposed a $1.2 billion tax increase designed to cover the state’s budget shortfall and make the tax system more progressive, but voters defeated it by a nearly 2-1 margin. The governor pledged not to raise taxes without the support of the people, and Alabama is not permitted to borrow money to finance government spending. close
