Bentley Talks Budget

Saturday, January 16, 2016


Governor Robert Bentley won't propose tax increases in the upcoming legislative session that could see more funding cuts to state agencies. Bentley said that his proposed general fund budget will not include tax increases. Bentley's decision comes after nearly a full year of fighting with lawmakers over taxes. Bentley last year asked lawmakers to approve $541 million in tax increases to avoid budget cuts. Legislators approved a cigarette tax but rejected many of his other ideas. Legislators spent this week in budget hearings. The session begins February 2.
