MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is expected to announce a gas tax proposal this week as infrastructure improvement takes center stage in this year's legislative session.

Ivey's press office said she will have a Wednesday news conference to announce an infrastructure plan.

A proposed gas tax increase to fund road and bridge construction is expected to be among the top issues in the legislative session that begins Tuesday.

The governor is expected to disclose details of the infrastructure proposal that she first teased in her inaugural address.

In her inaugural address last month, Ivey said Alabama must improve infrastructure to compete in a 21st century global economy.

Wednesday's news conference will be held in Maplesville.
