SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE SESSION TO DISCUSS PRISON SYSTEM COULD BE PUSHED BACK

Montgomery

A special legislative session to discuss Alabama’s prison system was expected to take place this fall, but now it could be pushed back until 2020, according to Rep. Rodney Sullivan.

Sullivan says legislators need more time to gather more data regarding the prisons.

Sen. Gerald Allen says that Gov. Kay Ivey could call a special session in the regular 2020 legislative session.

“There’s a number of things that must be considered and maybe they’re just trying to make sure that all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed and make sure that we get it right,” Allen said.

The special session was expected to be in October.
