April 10, 2023 Group Watch: Governor Ivey Launches “Game Plan” Bill Package

Governor Ivey launched her plan for Alabama’s continued economic success, The Game Plan, a proposed package of four economic development bills that will strengthen the state’s competitiveness for job-creating projects. The Game Plan includes: 

  • A bill to renew the Alabama Jobs Act and the Growing Alabama program and extends their sunset dates to 2028.
  • The Site Evaluation and Economic Development Strategy Act (SEEDS), which will allow the State Industrial Development Authority to accelerate the development of industry-ready sites at a time when available sites are scarce and other states are expanding their site programs.
  • The Innovation and Small Business Act aims to supercharge growth in Alabama’s innovation economy and support underrepresented businesses and enterprises in rural areas, transforming the state into a hub for technology and innovation.
  • The Enhancing Transparency Act will require the Alabama Department of Commerce to publish certain incentivized project information on its web site. 

The mayors of the state’s 10 largest cities (Auburn, Birmingham, Decatur, Dothan, Hoover, Huntsville, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa) support the governor’s plan. The Big 10 Mayors also urged the legislature to reauthorize and expand our incentive packages so that communities can continue to successfully compete with neighboring states.
