Montgomery, Ala.

Alabama legislators are returning to Montgomery after last week's meeting schedule got interrupted by the winter storm.

Alabama Senate leaders said they hope to vote on a proposal to ban legislators from becoming lobbyists for two years after they leave office. A loophole in current law allows lawmakers to resign and immediately lobby the chamber opposite where they served.

Some Republicans are pushing the bill after several GOP lawmakers resigned last year.

House Republicans will hold a noon news conference on an effort to allow high school students to enroll in job-training classes at two-year colleges.

Outside the Statehouse, a coalition of groups will hold a noon rally to call for new regulations on payday loans.
