Lawmakers face another packed day in session

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Another busy day is ahead for Alabama lawmakers. Republicans have put more of their agenda on the fast track to being debated and passed.

Wednesday was the first day that bills could be considered. Committees approved several GOP bills; one that would allow Alabamians to opt of the federal health care law and another that would require voters to show ID at the polls.

They also passed legislation to prevent midyear budget cuts to public schools by changing the way the legislature writes the state education budget.
