Alabama again ranks second to last in the nation in environmental spending | al.com: Only Colorado spends less than Alabama on a per capita basis, said Scott Hughes, an ADEM spokesman. The data is compiled by the Environmental Council of States.

Alabama ranked 49th out of the 50 states in fiscal year 2012, LeFleur said, and will remain second to last for fiscal year 2013.

LeFleur has previously said that the state had chosen to have a barebones environmental agency. In his comments Friday, he said that the state might fail even that low bar in the near future.
