How will the budget affect your day-to-day life?

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Greetings from WBRC FOX6 News! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're working on for you tonight.

How will the state budget affect your day-to-day life?

We finally have a state budget for next year, so now what? Christy Hutchings tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 9 is digging into how this plan is going to affect the services you may depend on and the schools where your kids are learning when it goes into effect in just about 2 weeks.

Human trafficking issues in Alabama

And new tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 10, we're talking to the founder of Wellhouse in Leeds, a human trafficking survivor, who's traveling the state right now and today talked to some social workers about just how dangerous and in need some of the people these case workers encounter everyday are. A new state study out this week says our state had 37 documented cases of human trafficking last year, but these case workers tonight say the actual number is much higher.

Those stories and more beginning at 9 on WBRC FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
