Legislators push to keep Eastern Shore road projects funded

Debate about a last-minute agreement to shift funding to an extension of the Foley Beach Express at the expense of two Eastern Shore road projects continued Tuesday with two legislators pushing against the deal.

County and state records show Pittman and Commissioner Bob James hold financial interest in property located near the proposed interchange at Baldwin County 13. James confirmed ownership in 17 acres at Baldwin County 64 and 13, and minority interest in Renaissance Center property near the proposed interchange.
