LWVAL 2016 Legislative Report
Reporting on the 2016 Regular Session
of the Alabama Legislature

The 2016 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature
adjourned May 4, Sine Die.

The Legislative Report is updated through the end of the 2016 Regular Session.

During the 2016 regular session of the Alabama Legislature, LWVAL kept citizens informed about the legislature's activities regarding issues of importance to the League via this 2016 Legislative Report. The report is updated weekly (with some exception). For each bill, the report includes bill sponsors, bill summary, complete bill text, current status of the legislation, LWVAL's position on the legislation, and LWVAL's action. Action Alerts urging citizens to contact their legislators were posted in this report at times when their voice would be most effective. See the LWVAL 2016 Legislative Priorities list for the issues on which the LWVAL Action Team was focused during the 2016 regular legislative session. The 2015 Legislative Report remains posted for your review, along with the First and Second Special Sessions of 2015.
