Gov. Bob Riley called a special session for lawmakers to address ethics reforms such as stopping legislators from holding another state job, prohibiting the transfer of money between political action committees, requiring online reporting of lobbyist expenditures on public officials, and limiting the gifts that can be given to public officials and public employees.
He called them into session beginning at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
