4/11/2016 Group Watch: General Fund Budget Done

Last Tuesday, right after returning from Spring Break, the Alabama Legislature over-rode Governor Robert Bentley’s veto of the $1.85 billion General Fund budget, making the budget bill law. The Senate vote was 22-11; the House vote was 71-24.¬†Bentley was against the budget because, according to him, it “didn’t adequately fund Medicaid.”¬†The governor is still looking for ways to up Medicaid’s funding and mentioned a possible special session to address the issue.
