March 15, 2021 Group Watch: Delay on Bill to Check Ivey’s Power

A bill designed to check Governor Ivey’s emergency powers was headed for the Senate, but has been put on pause for now. Lt. Governor Will Ainsworth and some Republican lawmakers have disagreed with several of the governor’s decisions during the the pandemic, including business restrictions and mask mandates, and feel, in the future, that the legislature should have some say in such matters. This bill, sponsored by┬áSenator Tom Whatley (R-Auburn),┬ásets parameters for legislative involvement. Ivey has gotten support from state Democrats on this issue, who are not on board with the bill, and her office says she’s watching the bill’s progress and “staying engaged.”
