With 15 days done in its 30-day regular session, the Alabama Legislature this week moved one of the state’s budgets with the other expected to be close behind. All 35 senators got behind a $300 million tax cut on food sales taxes and retail crime legislation got its first committee consideration this week.
Much of the second half of the session will be spent with the Alabama Legislature deciding how it wants to spend (or not spend) state revenue.
The Alabama House will convene at 1 p.m. and the Alabama Senate at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 2, for the 16th day of the 2023 regular session.
