We report on today’s House passage of the $1 billion dollar General Fund budget. The key elements from the Senate-passed version were intact, including state employee pay raises. We will also report on a Senate committee today approving a $6.6 billion dollar education budget and sending it to the floor, where it could be up for consideration on Thursday. And we’re joined by Rep. Jimmy Martin of Clanton, who discusses school security concerns, as well as the need for prison mental healthcare upgrades and more correctional officers.
