Gov. could call special session over PACT

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley says he will call a special session of the Legislature to address financial problems with the state's prepaid college tuition plan if legislators develop a consensus about what to do and assure him it will pass.

Riley said Thursday reaching a consensus won't be easy.

The Legislature ended its regular session last week without providing any bailout for the program, but it did pass a resolution asking the state pension fund to do a financial study of the program.

Riley said Thursday he supports doing that study.
