Governor Bob Riley signed the state's general fund budget into law. Riley says it's funding increases will offer a record amount for mine inspections and allow the state to hire 100 new state troopers. He says passing the budget was the result of great leadership and bipartisan support.
"When you look at what we sent over there are some changes to what we had originally planned but not many. But without exception every time we had an opportunity to pull this group together this time it happened," said Governor Riley.
Wednesday, the governor is expected to sign into law an income tax bill that will provide an income tax break for many Alabamians.
