The Alabama House will debate the $1.6 billion budget when lawmakers come into session Tuesday.

The General Fund budget funds most non-education state services like prisons, courts, state troopers and Medicaid.

The House will consider a proposed budget that gives the legislature and the courts more than the governor had recommended.

It gives the governor's office less than Riley asked for and ignores the governor's request to eliminate special projects for legislators.

If the budget passes the House it will go to the Senate for debate.
