MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A proposed constitutional amendment to spend $1 billion on road construction projects is losing narrowly in early returns.
With half of the precincts reporting statewide Tuesday night, 56% were voting against Amendment Three.
Amendment Three would authorize taking $100 million per year for 10 years from a state savings account and using the money to build roads and bridges in every county.
Amendments One and Two were also trailing.
