Leaders in the new Republican-controlled Alabama Legislature predict they will pass Gov. Bob Riley's ethics proposals in a special session, starting Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Del Marsh of Anniston said there are enough votes to pass all seven bills in the legislative agenda proposed by the outgoing Republican governor.

Legislators are holding an orientation session in Tuscaloosa and the topics Tuesday include legislative ethics.

Sen. Cam Ward of Alabaster has sponsored a bill to give subpoena power to the State Ethics Commission for several years. He predicts the bill will finally go through this time.

Senate Minority Leader Roger Bedford of Russellville says Democrats are planning to present their own ethics proposals Wednesday.
