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

While it has faced vocal opposition, the bill to remove the requirement to have a permit for the concealed carry of a gun in Alabama is now law. After being passed by the House, modified in the Senate and then approved by the conference committee (made necessary by Senate changes), Governor Ivey signed the bill into law without delay. This makes Alabama the 22nd state to remove this type of permit requirement, a move hailed by gun rights advocates.

Other legislative action last week included the passage of the $8.1 billion education budget in the House, forward progress for this session’s gambling bill and the full passage of a bill to make detecting the dangerous substance fentanyl easier and more cost effective in an effort to reduce overdose deaths.

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