Gov. Bob Riley plans to ask the Alabama Legislature to pass a number of bills aimed at making state government more ethical.
One of those measures would require legislators and other public officials to fully disclose any gifts from lobbyists. That would include meals, travel or tickets to sporting events.
The governor is scheduled to outline his proposed ethics reform legislation in a speech Tuesday to the Rotaract Club of Birmingham.
The legislation proposed by the governor would also require lobbyists to disclose on the Internet all spending on public officials and their family members.
The Alabama Legislature will consider the proposals when it begins its regular session in January.
