DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Alabama lawmakers return to session Tuesday.

Each year the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce brings area lawmakers together just before they head to Montgomery.

The Eggs and Issues breakfast attracts hundreds of business leaders and others interested in what the session will bring.

This year gambling legislation is expected to be considered again.

So is health legislation motivated by political beliefs.

“I think that you will see bills that will be anti-mask requirements, anti-shot vaccine requirements trying to stop the mandates that are being placed on us at the federal level,” says Rep. Paul W. Lee (R-Dothan).

Lawmakers gavel in Tuesday afternoon then they’ll head to the state capitol to hear Governor Ivey deliver her State of the State address.
