Riley Calls Special Session

Florence TimesDaily: Higher education’s request for a better 2008-09 budget may surface again in the special legislative session that starts Tuesday.

Gov. Bob Riley on Friday called the Legislature into special session to pass the 2008-09 education budget and other bills.

“Legislators need to get this done as quickly as possible,” Riley said. “Our students and teachers are waiting on them to finish their work.”

The 2008 regular session ended Monday without an education budget, forcing teacher layoffs and a special session.
