Alberta Premier Alison Redford outlined her government's priorities for the fall sitting, which started Monday afternoon. 

In a speech to the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, Redford was expected to introduce legislation to reduce commute times with dedicated bus lanes, car pool lanes and separate lanes for slow-moving vehicles.

She also outlined how the province will better protect Albertans from future floods.
