MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama legislators are getting ready for the final day of their 2013 session.

 

The Legislature convenes at 9 a.m. Monday. Both chambers will have to decide whether to accept or reject the governor's proposal to delay tax credits for private school attendance for two years.

 

Pending in the House is a bill that would allow workers to keep guns locked in their vehicles while on the job. The House could also consider a bill requiring drug testing for welfare applicants if they have had a drug conviction in the last five years.

 

The Senate could decide whether to lift Alabama's limits on campaign contributions by corporations. Two bond issues for school security and school technology equipment are also awaiting a vote in the Senate.
