MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Longtime state fiscal expert Kelly Butler is Alabama's new state budget officer.

Gov. Robert Bentley announced Butler's appointment on Tuesday.

The state budget officer leads the Executive Budget Office and advises the administration on the state's General Fund and education budgets.

Butler has been assistant state budget officer for two years. He previously worked for 19 years with the Legislative Fiscal Office, most recently serving as the state Senate's fiscal officer.

Bentley says Butler brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the job.
