Will Voters Approve Constitutional Amendment for General Fund Budget?
The Alabama General Fund budget for the new fiscal year faces a critical test at the ballot box.
As we've reported, voters will decide in September whether to transfer money from the Alabama Trust Fund to the general fund.
When CBS 8 News hit the streets to find out if people will approve that, everyone we talked with said no. Instead, many folks say they think the state should look elsewhere for money.
That vote happens September 18th. If the money transfer fails to pass, the Legislature would have to go into special session to come up with something else quickly because the new fiscal year starts October 1.
