Special Session for Alabama General Fund Budget

Governor Robert Bentley is calling a special session next week on the general fund budget. The governor said today that he will call lawmakers back to Montgomery on July 13. The 2015 regular session ended in a stalemate after lawmakers could not agree on tax increases. Bentley vetoed a spending plan that would have cut $200 million from state agencies. State agencies are currently operating without a budget for the fiscal year that begins October 1. The governor on Friday will release his call for the session, which lists the issues he expects lawmakers to address.
