MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The new Republican majority in the
Alabama Legislature will flex its muscles as several bills Republicans campaigned on last year will be up first for consideration in House committees this week.

The Legislature opens its 2011 session Tuesday.

The House and Senate will come into session briefly at noon to conduct routine business.

Gov. Robert Bentley will give his first State of the State speech to lawmakers at 6:30 p.m. in the old House chamber at the state Capitol.

On Wednesday the House Constitution Campaigns and Elections
Committee will consider a bill long pushed by the GOP to require
all voters to show a valid, government-issued photo identification
at the polls.

It's one of several GOP-pushed bills on committee agendas this week.
