March 28, 2022 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

A lot of funding legislation got passed the week before last (and the legislature was out for Spring Break last week.) The House passed the General Fund Budget and appropriations bills to fund the Children First Trust Fund and the Coalition Against Domestic Violence. It also passed the bill that will give a 4-percent raise to state workers. On the flip-side, a Senate committee passed a bill that’s already passed the House and that will, if signed into law, eventually eliminate the state business privilege tax.

Week before last also saw some more controversy, with a bill to stop the teaching of “divisive topics” being passed by the House despite strong opposition from Democrats when it was still in committee.

And more positive economic development announcements came in too, representing millions of dollars in investments and thousands of new jobs. More Alabama political news is below, so read on.

The House and Senate were on Spring Break last week and return on Tuesday, March 29 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively.
