MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama legislators will return from their spring break April 1, and they will have plenty to do with only three meeting days left.

The pending legislation ranges from serious matters like the state budgets and abortion restrictions to light-hearted matters, such as declaring cornbread the official state bread.

The House and the Senate have passed differing versions of the General Fund and education budgets. They will have to come to an agreement when they return.

A House-passed bill to extend the waiting period for abortions from 24 hours to 48 hours is waiting a vote in the Senate.

A Senate-passed gun bill is awaiting consideration in a House committee. It would allow people to carry loaded guns in their vehicles without buying pistol permits.
