Bentley Said State Budgets Look Fine

By  | 

Montgomery, Ala.
Gov. Robert Bentley says his first impression of the state education and state general fund budgets is that they are basically fine.

Bentley said it appears legislators put some pork projects into the budgets and he's still reviewing a few items. But he sad he hasn't seen any major problems yet.

The Alabama Legislature passed both state budgets last week.

Bentley has until the legislature's last meeting day Monday to decide whether to sign the budgets into law or send them back with recommended changes.

The governor said he will let lawmakers know his decision Monday.
