Having an up close and personal experience with Severe weather, Dave has provided long form severe weather coverage on several stations and is involved with public speaking about severe weather preparedness. Dave Mack has lived a unique life that includes stand up comedy as well as hosting his own regional television show, and most recently added "Feature Film Actor" to his resume having co-starred in the feature film "Prodigal". Dave is scheduled to star in two additional feature films in 2012. Dave and his wife LaDonna (a lifelong Alabama resident) have 4 children and multiple pets including Dave's special friend....his chihuahua "Tanner".
Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions is trying a new strategy to get the Senate to pass a budget, saying lawmakers should not increase the debt ceiling until the Democrat-controlled chamber finally passes a spending plan.
Congress will have to address three critical fiscal issues that each have deadlines over the next two-to-three months -- the debt ceiling, automatic federal spending cuts known as sequestration and a budget resolution.
Federal law requires Congress to pass a budget plan every year. But while the Republican-controlled House has annually passed budgets, the Senate has not passed one since April 2009 --- making the Senate technically 1,350 days overdue. Congress instead operates on a series of short-term spending plans. The current resolution expires March 27.
