Alabama Lawmakers Strive for Agreement on Budget Shortfall
The Associated Press
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama legislators return to Montgomery on Monday looking for something that eluded them for the last five months: agreement.
Legislators are resuming a special session called by Gov. Robert Bentley over a projected shortfall in the general fund budget.
Bentley is asking lawmakers to approve $302 million in taxes, including a tobacco tax increase.
Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh said Senate Republicans have developed their own plan.
