Riley cancels special session

Governor Riley has decided not to call a fall special session of the legislature to address ethics and insurance legislation.

Riley's office started notifying republican legislators this morning that the Governor couldn't reach a consensus with democratic legislators on the issues.

Some lawmakers say a special session would have been a waste of money.

Democratic legislative leaders had been encouraging the republican Governor to wait until the next regular session in February.
