The Alabama Legislature could order a restart for the state government's massive information technology operations.

Republican leaders in the Senate are seeking a vote Tuesday on a two-bill package they say will streamline the state's information technology operations, reduce state workers and save 10 percent to 20 percent annually.

Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh said he wants the Senate to vote on the bills Tuesday because his priority this session is identifying ways to operate state government more efficiently.

Senate Democratic Whip Bobby Singleton said senators need more information about the effect on state employees, and they want to make sure the competition for state computer contracts is fair and open.
