Trip to Paris Costs Alabama Thousands


By Alabama News Network

Governor Robert Bentley's industry-hunting trip to France last month comes within a nearly $100,000 price tag.

That's according to a State Department of Commerce spokesperson who says the trip included Bentley and six other people.

The goal of the trip to the Paris Air Show is to bring home jobs here to Alabama.

Bentley's delegation was not the only one from the state. Nineteen communities, economic development groups and chambers of commerce also sent representatives.
