ST. JOHNS, N.L. The Opposition Liberals in Newfoundland and Labrador are considering legal action over a decision to deny the party more funding.

The Liberals are upset by a decision by the House of Assembly Management Commission not to increase the funding to the Opposition caucus.

Party Leader Yvonne Jones says legal action is a possibility.

Jones says the Liberals believe some commission members may not have fulfilled all their obligations when they made their decision.

An independent consulting firm had recommended that the Opposition receive an additional $162,000 for research and policy staffing resources.

Organizations: Assembly Management Commission

Geographic location: Newfoundland and Labrador

    All I can say PLEASE Mr Williams take care of our tax dollars, If Yvonne Jones is the right leader for the liberal party, why didn she step forward in the last election in 2007, And bring the party back to power. It time for the Liberal party to get a leader, instead trying to find way of wasting tax payer dollars,
