WHAT HAPPENED AT THE SPECIAL SESSION?

The Alabama Legislature wrapped up its special session without passing a budget to make up for the state’s $200 million shortfall in the general fund.

Gov. Robert Bentley said the House is doing everything it can, but he wants to see more cooperation from the higher chamber. Other legislators disagree on spending cuts and revenue, while the main disagreements seem to be between the House and the Senate.

Bentley will likely call for another special session in September to try and pass a budget before the fiscal year ends Sept.  30.

WVUA 23’s Jack Royer spoke to Bentley and local legislators about the next steps to passing a budget.
