3/11/2014 Group Watch: Veto Threat?

This week, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said he would send back to the legislature an education budget that does not include a 2 percent pay increase and an increase in health insurance for funding education employees. Last week, the Senate passed an education budget with a one-time 1 percent bonus for teachers and without the state’s share of insurance premiums proposed by the governor. A spokesperson for the governor confirmed that he will attach an executive amendment if the document reaching his desk does not include his proposals. A House committee had a public hearing on the Senate-passed bill this week, but took no actions. The committee chair says he will prepare a substitute spending plan for the committee to consider next week.
