Alabama senators oppose clunkers extension

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Both of Alabama's U.S. senators voted no when the Senate agreed to a $2 billion extension of the "cash for clunkers" program.

The Senate approved the extension 60-37 Thursday. Republicans Jeff Sessions and Richard Shelby were among 33 Republicans opposing the extension.

The extension was approved largely along party lines.
