Senate Commitee to Examine General Fund

By Associated Press

Montgomery, AL – An Alabama Senate committee is beginning work on the state General Fund budget that the House passed last week.

The chairman of the Senate Finance and Taxation-General Fund Committee, Democrat Roger Bedford, says he expects his committee to approve the House version of the budget at a meeting Wednesday morning.

Then the $2.5 billion budget will go to the Senate, where it could come up for a vote next week.

The Alabama Legislature has six meeting days left in its 2009 session and it is rushing to wrap up work on both state budgets.
