of the Alabama Legislature

Last updated May 20, 2017

The 2017 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature
adjourned Friday, May 19th sine die.


During the 2017 regular session of the Alabama Legislature, LWVAL kept citizens informed about the legislature's activities regarding issues of importance to the League via this 2017 Legislative Report. The report was updated weekly (with some exceptions). For each bill, the report includes bill sponsors, bill summary, link to 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. The LWVAL 2016 Legislative Report remains posted for your review, along with the First Special Session of 2016.
