April 4, 2022 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

As the 2022 regular session nears its end, bills will soon be relegated to the “passed” and “dead” lists. Those that made it all the way through to the “passed” list last week include a bill that will help protect the state’s senior citizens by creating an elder abuse registry. Governor Ivey has already signed it into law.A bill to expand healthcare access by regulating telemedicine passed the Senate, and a bill aimed at boosting the state’s showing in the math portions of standardized tests, called the Numeracy Act, made it through the House.

The news of job creation and capital investment continues to come in, and the expansion of broadband in the state is moving right along, with Governor Ivey announcing that ARPA funds for that purpose have already been transferred to ADECA. Keep scrolling to learn more about activity last week in the legislature and in #alpolitics.
