MONTGOMERY —

The Alabama Legislature has canceled all activities today due to icy roads.

The House couldn't get enough members to Montgomery to meet on Tuesday. The Senate got barely enough members to the Statehouse and had a busy afternoon.

House Speaker Mike Hubbard and Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh say the Legislature will waste a meeting day today, but it's best for safety reasons. 

They are planning for the House and Senate to try to meet at 10 a.m. Thursday. Howeverk Hubbard said it may be Thursday afternoon before roads are clear enough for enough members to arrive for a meeting.
