Legislators Have Priorities for Session

Republicans in the Alabama House say a small business tax credit and a teacher pay raise are among their top priorities for the legislative session that begins Tuesday. House Speaker Mike Hubbard and GOP leaders announced the agenda on Thursday titled, "Right for Alabama." Hubbard said legislators aren't specifying an amount for the teacher pay raise this early in the budget process. Bills on the agenda would give a $15-hundred tax credit to small businesses for each new job created; develop a process to provide grants for school wireless technology and create a position of taxpayer advocate at the Alabama Department of Revenue. House Republicans announce an agenda at the start of every session.
