We have a comprehensive preview of next week’s special legislative session on prisons, including conversations with Senate Majority Leader Clay Scofield of Guntersville and House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels of Huntsville. Both say they are optimistic about a prison construction bill and reform measures being passed. Secretary of State John Merrill will join us to discuss the "legislative blackout period" for campaign fundraising during the special session. Merrill will also talk about Alabama election integrity issues raised by My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell. And State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris will talk with us about our COVID death rate now being the highest in the nation, while the numbers of cases and hospitalizations are improving.
