This Week In The Alabama Legislature

We’re entering the third week of the legislative session, and it looks to be a quiet week. The House will take up the texting while driving ban aka “TTYL” bill (HB2) sponsored by Rep. Jim McClendon, Rep. Mac McCutcheon’s legislation adding utility trucks and wreckers to the list of vehicles for which drivers are required to slow down and move into a vacant lane for when parked on the side of the road (HB76), and Rep. Allen Farley’s bill to crack down on synthetic drugs known as “spice” or “salts” (HB158).  Depending on how fast things move, the House may also get to Rep. Jay Love’s bill to reward teachers who complete the national board certification process (HB251).

Up on the 7th floor the Senate will take up some of the economic development incentives bills passed by the House last week (HB151, HB152, HB159 and HB160).

Calls To House Health Committee Needed

The House Health Committee will meet on Wednesday morning at 9:00am and will consider the Health Care Rights of Conscience Act (HB178).  This legislation gives health care providers, institutions and payers the right to decline to perform services that violate their consciences.  Eagle Forum urges Health Committee members to support this legislation.
