Robert Bentley, whose staff indicated Thursday that the administration would review the bill thoroughly before deciding whether to sign it. “This is another classic attempt to be punitive against public education,” said Henry Mabry, executive secretary of the AEA, about removing him from the Board of Control for the TRS.
