Alabama Special Session Adjourns Sine Die
The first special session of 2016 adjourned sine die on September 7, 2016. Gov. Robert Bentley’s lottery proposal failed in the Senate. Instead, the Legislature approved House Bill 36 to use part of the BP oil settlement to provide funds for the Alabama Medicaid Agency.
Despite legislators attempts to use the special session to revamp the ethics laws, House Bills 10, 11, and 32 were not passed.
