February 7, 2022 Group Watch: News & Views from the State Hous

While Alabama has celebrated a string of major economic development announcements in recent months, many of them focused on big companies locating or expanding in the state, leaders recognize that small businesses are also key drivers of the economy. To support them, Lt. Governor Ainsworth revealed the Alabama Small Business Commission’s legislative package last week.

In education news, a bill to increase parental choice in schools was approved by the Senate Education Policy Committee. Also, a bill removing the requirement for a permit for a concealed weapon also made progress last week, being passed by the Alabama Senate Judiciary Committee.
