MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama lawmakers have concluded the 2021 legislative session.

Legislators adjourned late Monday night after approving bills to ban curbside voting and delay an upcoming requirement for third-graders to meet reading benchmarks before moving to the fourth grade.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on Monday signed legislation creating a medical marijuana program in the state.

A number of controversial bills died without reaching a final vote.

Those including gambling legislation and a bill to outlaw gender-affirming medical treatments, such as the puberty-blockers, to treat transgender minors.
