March 7, 2022 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

Last week, it sure felt like spring had arrived, and while the season may “officially” be a few weeks off, Alabama’s Republican legislators had some spring in their steps after Senate Majority Leader Clay Scofield outlined his party’s major accomplishments so far. The legislature’s 2022 regular session has hit the halfway mark, and, according to Scofield, a lot of good work has already been done; see details of his comments below. 

Still to come but moving quickly ahead is a bill to repeal the state’s concealed carry permit. It’s met some resistance but isn’t slowing down.

More businesses are expanding all over the state, continuing the trend from last year. Bonnie Plants is among them, growing bigger in Bullock County.

And as the world is bombarded with images of the conflict and destruction in Ukraine,Governor Ivey called on all Alabamians to keep the country in their thoughts. She proclaimed last Wednesday an official day of prayer for the nation. Read all about it and more below.

The House and Senate return on Tuesday, March 8 at 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., respectively.
