Senate Approves General Fund Budget; House Committee Approves Education Trust Fund Budget

On Tuesday, the Senate approved the $2.1 billion state general fund budget by a unanimous vote. The House moved to non-concur on the budget, so it now goes to conference committee.


The budget sets aside an extra $7 million for the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) to hire 50 new state troopers, increases the Department of Corrections’ budget by $46 million, and includes a 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment for state employees.
