Currently, draft language for Insurance Fairness has been completed and awaits a formal introduction. We are actively seeking advocates to assist the efforts to pass Insurance Fairness in 2019.
The Alabama State Legislature works on a four year cycle and in 2019 will be in the first year of their cycle. The 2019 Legislative Session convenes March 5th and will tentatively conclude June 18th. The Alabama Legislature will hold an organizational session beginning January 8th. Introduction deadlines for both chambers has not been determined.
Currently, the Republican Party controls both chambers of the State Legislature and the Office of the Governor.
