MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama state lawmakers return to Montgomery Thursday for the final meeting day of the first regular session of the Legislature under Republican leadership in more than 130 years.

Lawmakers must still give final passage to the state budgets that fund public education and other government services, such as Medicaid, state troopers and prisons.

House and Senate Republican leaders have declared the session a success -- saying lawmakers have passed most of the items that they promised during last year's election campaigns.

In addition to the budgets, items on the final day agenda include GOP pushed bills to require voters show government-issued photo identification at the polls and to further restrict abortions.
