Alabama Legislators to Get Financial Forecasts

Feb 5, 2013

Alabama legislators will get an overview of the state's financial situation before they begin their 2013 legislative session at noon.

The director of the Legislative Fiscal Office, Norris Green, and the state finance director, Marquita Davis, are scheduled to address legislators at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Capitol. The financial overview is the traditional kickoff for each year's session.

Legislative budget committee chairmen says revenue for the state General Fund budget looks flat for the next fiscal year, but prospects for the education budget are picking up.
