BRADENTON, Fla. — Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley is proposing to sell as much as $500 million of grant anticipation revenue vehicle bonds to finance upgrades to road and bridges in projects that his office would select after consulting with local leaders around the state.

Meanwhile, 17 state senators are sponsoring a bill unrelated to the governor’s proposal that would authorize the sale of $650 million of Garvee bonds. SB 339 would establish the Public Road and Bridge Construction Council to select projects proposed by counties.
