MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A proposed constitutional amendment to spend $1 billion on road construction projects is losing narrowly in early returns.

With half of the precincts reporting statewide Tuesday night, 56
percent were voting against Amendment Three.

Amendment Three would authorize taking $100 million per year for 10 years from a state savings account and using the money to build roads and bridges in every county.

Amendments One and Two were also trailing.
