News

from al.com, By Mike Cason

Gov. Kay Ivey launched her new term today with a call for a gasoline tax increase for the Alabama road system and a pledge that her administration is poised for a major announcement about the state’s long-troubled prisons.

Ivey said much more during her inaugural address on the Capitol steps, including her belief that the state’s best days were ahead and her promise to serve all Alabamians, including those who voted against her.

But when it comes to what Ivey said about her specific plans, her comments on the gas tax and prison issues stood out during one of the governor’s most high-profile speeches since taking office in April 2017.
