Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

The Alabama Legislature kicks off an election-year session Tuesday Jan. 14 and will deal with possible changes to the state tax code, Medicaid and a proposal to create a state lottery.

The House Republican Caucus is pushing a package of bills aimed at simplifying tax laws while maintaining the GOP's record of not raising taxes.

Many democrats are pushing for an expansion of the Medicaid program.

House minority leader Craig Ford is proposing a referendum on creating a state lottery, but House majority leader Micky Hammon says that's not going to pass.

The Georgia General Assembly started today for their 2014 session.
