Alabama: Gov. Riley asks for delay in filing report on HAVA compliance

WSFA reports: U.S. District Judge Keith Watkins has given Governor Bob Riley another week to submit his first progress report as Special Master appointed by the court in the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) case filed by the federal government against the state of Alabama and Secretary of State Nancy Worley. The report was initially due today, September 5, 2006, the first Tuesday of the month as outlined previously by the court.

In the Motion for Extension request filed and granted on September 1, 2006, by the governor's chief legal adviser, Ken Wallis, Riley says "Though this team is very nearly assembled, there remains one person who has not fully committed to serve and cannot be briefed on the matter until next week. Thus providing the Governor until September 12, 2006, to submit his initial progress report will enable him to then announce the entirety of his implementation team, rather than an incomplete slate." -- WSFA TV Montgomery, AL - Governor Riley Given Extension to Submit First Report in Voter Registration Case
