ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — State lawmakers from Limestone County are opening a local office in Athens where constituents can seek help or answers to questions about state government.

Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/XjtomE ) that Alabama taxpayers won't be paying for the office. Instead $6,000-per-year office space is being funded by a portion of the delegation's TVA funds, which was allowed by a recent change in the law.

The office will serve constituents of the three state representatives and two senators who represent Limestone County. A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for Monday.

The lawmakers' office is located at the College Street shopping center across from the campus of Athens State University.
