LWVAL 2015 Legislative Report
Reporting on the 2015 Regular Session
of the Alabama Legislature

The Alabama Legislature will convene on Tuesday, March 3, 2015. During the regular session, LWVAL will keep citizens informed about the legislature's activities regarding issues of importance to the League via the 2015 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 are posted in this report at times when their voice will be most effective. See the LWVAL 2015 Legislative Priorities list below for the issues on which the LWVAL Action Team will be focused during the 2015 regular legislative session.
