AL Legislature Convenes Special Session for 30 Minutes, Adjourns Until August 3rd
The Alabama Legislature convened a special session Monday, July 13, 2015, only to recess until August 3, 2015. The Senate was in session for a total of 19 minutes and the House was in session for less than 30 minutes.
Legislators claimed the timing of the special session was rushed, so they were unprepared to consider the governor’s proposed budget.
Lawmakers will reconvene the session on August 3 with the intent of passing a budget.
