Ex-Felon Voting Bill Could Face Veto

Alabama Gov. Riley has on his desk the bill to restore the voting rights of most ex-felons, but is considering whether to sign the bill. That bill and the voter ID bill passed because the Black Caucus and the Republicans reached an agreement not to fillibuster the bills. Black leaders predict that a veto of the voter restoration bill will hurt Riley's effort to gather support for the tax increase referendum set for early September, according to the AP.
