MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Gov. Robert Bentley has signed legislation making revisions in Alabama's immigration law, even though he didn't like all of it.

Bentley also said Friday he has changed his mind and won't push for additional revisions to the law in the Legislature's special session.

The Legislature passed revisions to the immigration law on the last night of its regular session Wednesday. Bentley supported most of the changes, but he objected to one requiring the state to create a public database of illegal immigrants who end up in Alabama courts.

He originally wanted that changed in the Legislature's special session that began Thursday, but he didn't get anyone to sponsor his bill. He said Friday the Legislature has no appetite for more changes at this time.
