Democrats in the Alabama Legislature announced their legislative agenda on March 9th at a news conference at the State House. They call their platform a “Handshake with Working People” and not with big corporations. This is the first regular session in which Democrats will be attempting to pass their agenda as a minority. It doesn’t appear they will get much done in the early part of the session. Instead, Democrats in both chambers will be playing defense, trying to slow down the pace. So far, those efforts have been unsuccessful.
The Democratic agenda includes online filing of campaign finance forms and creating a searchable database; trying to curb the purchase of medication used in making methamphetamines; fighting distracted driving; creating tax incentives for existing and potential industries using millions of dollars of revenue from offshore oil and gas; eliminating tax loop holes for out-of-state corporations that Democrats believe are costing the state millions of dollars in revenue; illegal immigration; and constitutional reform. All of these items are important and perhaps some of them have a chance of at least being debated.
