Lawmakers in both chambers of Alabama's legislature have approved an education budget. Coverage for children 9 and younger would be capped at $40,000 annually. Whatley previously said he preferred "no cap" and would not support "anything less than 25 years old".

The Senate, by a 19-13 vote, added an amendment Wednesday to specify that insurers do not have to provide the coverage to adults.

Pittman cast the sole no vote against the bill, stating it will create obligations that the state can not afford to pay.
