The Alabama Education Association recently hired Gene Murphree, former vice chancellor for fiscal services at the state Department of Post-Secondary Education, on a temporary basis to analyze the impact of equity funding on Baldwin County, officials said.

John Hudson, Baldwin County representative for the union, said he didn’t know when Murphree might complete a report or what will be done with it.
