We report on the legislative session winding down today. Lawmakers gave final passage to the $7.1 billion education budget and a bill that would set up an appointed, rather than elected, state school board. A medical marijuana study commission bill also hung in the balance. We’re joined by Alabama Superintendent of Education Dr. Eric Mackey, who discusses the education budget and the school board bill. We’re also joined by Sen. Greg Albritton of Atmore, who talks about the General Fund, final passage of his marriage bill and the death of his lottery legislation.
