Continued talk of special session

Ken Wallis, legal adviser to Gov. Bob Riley, told lawmakers on Thursday that plans were not finalized, but to keep their calendars open next week beginning Monday.
Lawmakers were asking Wallis about a pending special session to handle financial woes in Jefferson County.
Wallis said he has spent about 99 of his time recently on issues related to Jefferson County.
State Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, said he recently talked to Riley and asked the governor to include ethics reform in the special session.
"I hope the governor will put all of that in the call," he said.
Holmes wants to stop lobbyists from buying lawmakers meals.
