Special session called to address General Fund budget and road money is about to run out

Special session called to address General Fund budget and road money is about to run out

Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for FOX6 News this evening.

Special session called

We were expecting it and now it's official. Governor Robert Bentley has called a special session of the legislature to begin Monday morning. Lawmakers will be working on a new budget after their first proposed budget was rejected by the Governor. We'll be watching to see what happens next.

Where the rubber hits the road

Federal money to repair Alabama roads will run out at the end of the month. What does that mean for the roads you drive on every day? We'll take a closer look.

High speed chase

A high speed chase runs from Bessemer to Tuscaloosa. We'll tell you how it ended and what started it in the first place.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 on FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
