MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A bond issue for a new hotel at Gulf State Park, an abortion bill and an execution drug secrecy bill are among the proposals that died on the final night of the legislative session.

Gov. Robert Bentley had named the $50 million bond issue a priority for the session. However, it sparked opposition from some north Alabama senators and did not get a Senate vote. Gulf Shores Republican Rep. Steve McMillan said not having the bond money could slow down the beach lodge and conference center project.

A bill to ban abortion clinics near schools also died this session. Senators also did not vote on a bill that would make secret the suppliers of execution drugs

Senators adjourned the session on Thursday.
