2016 LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: WEEK ONE
The 2016 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature began on Tuesday, February 2. Once again, the anemic General Fund budget will likely be the dominant topic of conversation both in Montgomery and around the state. The House and Senate convened briefly in the afternoon on Tuesday. Both bodies then recessed and reconvened later that evening for a Joint Session to hear the Governor’s State of the State Address, which he delivered in the old House Chamber in the State Capitol Building.
