Senate to take up roads bill

Senate Democrats, led by powerful Sen. Lowell Barron, will try again Tuesday to pass a bill that would, if approved by voters, use $1 billion over 10 years to improve roads and bridges in the state.

Barron, D-Fyffe, believes the bill would put people to work and improve safety on Alabama roads.
The money would be taken from the Alabama Trust Fund.
Republicans have concerns about raiding the trust fund. During a vote along almost straight party lines, Republicans were able to stop the bill in 2009.
