Alabama's Constitutional Revision Commission ended its rewrite of the state constitution on Wednesday with no major changes to provisions that give Montgomery broad control over the state's 67 counties.

The commission was created by the Alabama Legislature in 2011 to review and rewrite the entire 1901 constitution, piece by piece. The commission's revisions require approval by the Legislature, and passage by voters as amendments, before they could become part of the constitution.
