As this issue was being sent to the printer on May 27th, the Alabama Legislature had one day earlier completed its 27th legislative day after having returned from a two-week break. Upon the Legislators return, the two budgets were passed quickly and were sent to the Governor for his signature. Regardless of hearing how great the budgets are from some in the Legislature, in their present form, these budgets will do great and long-lasting damage and harm to our state. Many believe Gov. Robert Bentley will place some needed amendments on the two budgets, especially amending the General Fund budget.
A few more bills are considered important by the leadership in the House and Senate, and they will likely pass during the last week of the session. Clearly, there are several important matters to be considered, including the Congressional redistricting bill. But there are only three days left in which to get them passed. We will report on the final days of the session – and an overall recap of the entire session – in the July issue.
