Deadline To Introduce New Revenue Measures Approaching
Time is running out for the Alabama Legislature to address the more than $250 million General Fund budget shortfall during the regular session. Next Tuesday is the last day to introduce revenue raising measures that could pass this session.
The House approved an austere General Fund budget this week with no new revenue and large across-the-board cuts.
For more on this, and the rest of the news from Montgomery, we turn to Don Dailey. He’s the host of Capitol Journal on Alabama Public Television, and he joins WBHM each Friday during the legislative session. To start, Dailey tells WBHM’s Rachel Osier Lindley about the reaction to the proposed General Fund budget.
