MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Legislature’s 2014 session has come to a close.

The House and Senate wrapped up their session about 7:30 p.m. Thursday after passing the state education budget.

Numerous bills died on the last night, including one rewriting Alabama’s open meetings law and another keeping secret the companies that supply drugs for lethal injections.

Other dead bills included legislation protecting spay-neuter clinics and one banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
