Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley

In its second week of the session, the Alabama Legislature began laying the groundwork for a vote on an impeachment resolution against Gov. Robert Bentley. This after lawmakers put concerns on hold at the behest of former Attorney General Luther Strange, who indicated his office was looking into possible wrongdoing by Bentley. Now legislators are back on the case, so to speak.

And lawmakers debated the merits of a civics test requirement for high school students, as Don Dailey of Alabama Public Television tells WBHM’s Gigi Douban.
