Some lawmakers troubled over governor's budget plans

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Some Alabama lawmakers say they doubt Governor Riley's budget plans.

The budgets the governor outlined in Tuesday night's State of the State Address rely on a second federal stimulus bill that has not even become law yet.

On Wednesday, Riley told lawmakers he is counting on more than a billion dollars from Washington. Riley says it will keep school employees and maintain most state services at their present levels.

Even fellow Republicans remain skeptical of the governor's expectations.

The U.S. Senate is expected to take up that new stimulus plan in the next few weeks.
