January 17, 2022 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

Here we go again. The 2022 regular session of the Alabama Legislature convened last Tuesday. Governor Ivey kicked the legislative season off with her annual “state of the state” address. Much of the news she shared was positive, and there was a focus on ways to best use the American Rescue Plan Act funds coming to Alabama. She outlined the actions she wants the legislature to take on this topic. (And rumors of an early special session to tackle it are already in the air.)

Ivey also touched on her plans to expand outdoor recreation opportunities, and in doing so, boost tourism. She called for a pay raise for state workers as well. Read more on her remarks below and click on the “Read here” link to access the full speech.

As things really get underway in the coming weeks, look for gambling legislation to return and bills related to the creation of an Alabama Space Guard.

We’ve got more info on all this and more in this issue of Group Watch. And watch your inbox all session long for more Group Watch and the #alpolitics news you need to know.

The House and Senate return for day three of the 2022 regular session on Tuesday at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., respectively.
