As the legislative session moves near the mid-point it’s a good time to take a brief look at what has happened thus far. It appears the Senate has done a pretty good job of passing bills. As usual, the House has been active, sending a good number of House bills over to the Senate. But the best thing about this session may be that nothing real bad has happened to the people of Alabama at this juncture.
There have been a number of bills pushed by Governor Riley that failed to get traction in the session. For example, the charter schools legislation appears to be dead. The bills never got out of committee in either the House or Senate. I am not real sure what other bills the Administration is pushing. The bingo legislation hadn’t been up for floor debate in the Senate when this issue was sent to the printer. Hopefully, the bingo issue will have been settled one way or the other by the time this issue of the Report is mailed. There are lots of other important issues that must be dealt with.
