Plenty to get to this Monday!

Happy Monday Folks! & Happy February 1st!

So much to get to this morning on WAFF 48 News Today. Plus we have a pretty busy week ahead. First, big deal in politics. Iowa voters will caucus today.  For Democrats there are 44 delegates at stake and 30 for Republicans. We'll tell you about each candidates last minute push for support.

There is a chance you'll see a spike at the pump. That's if Alabama lawmakers get their way. They are proposing a new gas tax that they say will go towards improving roads and bridges. You can voice your opinion about it today at a Huntsville meeting. Jonathan Radford will tell you where to go in a live report at 5:00 & 6:00 a.m.

This morning, we also have to tell you about a kidnapping case near Birmingham and the crime spree a couple is still on with officers frantically searching for them. 

Tomorrow is a big day for state lawmakers. They will be kicking off the 2016 legislative session to crank out the next budget. We can always count on a spirited debate and talk of cuts so we'll look at what's at stake at 5:30 a.m. & 6:30 a.m.

Starting today, Alabama will now allow people with a past felony drug conviction to receive food stamps and welfare. We'll breakdown the reason behind the change at 5:30 a.m. & 6:30 a.m.

Also, we're starting out this Monday pretty warm temperature wise around the valley this morning. Our WAFF 48 Storm team has already called for a First Alert Weather Day on Tuesday. Meteorologist David Ernst will break down the potential for severe weather.

See you starting at 4:30 a.m.
