Plan to reopen Alabama driver's license offices in the works

MONTGOMERY, AL (WTVM/WXTX) - Alabama Governor, Robert Bentley said Tuesday that he may use a bridge loan or emergency funds to reopen the 31 driver's license locations closed due to budget cuts. However, according to multiple lawmakers, he will only do so with a commitment that those lawmakers will support revenue increases next year. The state and Governor saw a massive backlash after congresswoman Terri Sewell called for a federal investigation into the closings. 

Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Black Caucus and others quickly supported her call. 
Governor Bentley says lawmakers are to blame for the closings because they did not adequately fund government.
