Gov. Robert Bentley on Tuesday announced the Second Special Session to address the General Fund Budget will begin at 5 p.m. on Tues., Sept. 8.

“The start of Fiscal Year 2016 is quickly approaching, and there is still no General Fund Budget in place for state agencies to operate,” Bentley said. “There is still time remaining to pass a budget that does not drastically cut state services which will impact Alabamians.”

Bentley informed Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard and Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh of the date for the Special Session earlier on Tuesday. The governor has not released the items to be addressed in his call but said he would do so later this week.
