Legislators are heading to Special Session this summer after hitting an impasse on the state’s general fund budget.
The session ended with a vetoed spending plan and plenty of finger-pointing over who was to blame. Yet getting a budget this summer will depend on something in short supply this spring: agreement.
Gov. Robert Bentley says he plans to again ask lawmakers to approve taxes and budget changes when they are called into a Special Session.
Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh said he wants the governor to write the Special Session call so lawmakers can address a wide variety of ideas, including gambling legislation.
State agencies are without a budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.
