Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley on Tuesday announced the date of the second special session to address the General Fund Budget. The session of the Alabama Legislature will begin at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
“The start of Fiscal Year 2016 is quickly approaching, and there is still no General Fund Budget in place for state agencies to operate,” Gov. Bentley said. “There is still time remaining to pass a budget that does not drastically cut state services which will impact Alabamians. I look forward to working with lawmakers over the next few weeks to bring about real change in the way we fund state government moving forward.”
Gov. Bentley informed Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard and Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh of the date for the special session earlier on Tuesday. The governor’s call for items to be addressed in the session will be released later this week.
