As I stated earlier, the Senate passed no bills yesterday. The reason for no new business was because the Senate spent the day debating a $1 billion road bill. We do not expect a first reading in the Senate until after that deadlock is resolved.

For those interested in learning more about the dynamics of the Senate activity, I highly recommend Doc’s Political Parlor as one of the best blogs about Montgomery politics. Doc’s regularly features guest legislators who blog during the session in his Legislative Dispatch section. For 2010, Senators Steve French (R) and Zeb Little (D) as well as Representatives Ken Guin (D) and Cam Ward (R) will be blogging about the session. For those new to following state politics, that’s a pretty impressive bipartisan list of legislative leaders in Alabama.
