Gov. Riley's plan to speed up paroles for thousands of Alabama inmates could get interrupted next month by the state Senate.

The governor's five new appointees to the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles must be approved by a majority of the state Senate to stay in their jobs.

But the chairman of the Senate panel that reviews Riley's appointments says the parole board selections are facing opposition.
