Gov. Robert Bentley has vetoed an austere General Fund budget that included massive cuts for state agencies across the board.
Bentley says the budget approved by lawmakers last night is unworkable and would seriously hurt the people of Alabama. He vows to bring lawmakers back into special session this summer to come up with a new solution.
The budget would have cut $200 million from state agencies after lawmakers failed to agree on tax increases or any new sources of revenue.
