February 14, 2022 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

With the 2022 regular session in full swing, a lot of work got done at the State House last week. The Senate approved bills to bring about a major expansion of broadband throughout the state. And bills related to the loosening of some current state alcohol laws made it through both the House and Senate.

And some big news was handed down from the U.S. Supremer Court; it ruled to allow current congressional district lines in the state to stand, at least for now. The decision, which came last week, put on hold a lower court ruling calling for new redistricting. The Court will consider whether current districts are in violation of the Voting Rights Law at a later date, and that decision will have ripple effects beyond Alabama’s borders.

More on this and last week’s legislative happenings is below.

The House and Senate return on Tuesday, February 15 at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m, respectively.
