My first committee meeting of the day was Transportation and Energy at 0900. We debated two bills, one was passed out of committee and the other held over after a public hearing. We will continue to work on this legislation regarding automobile dismantlers and auctions of salvage automobiles.
The Senate went into session at 0930 this morning and debated at total of seven bills; five were passed and two carried over. A bill proposing changes to the Alabama Accountability Act and a bill regarding economic incentives in rural areas of were carried over. The bulk of our day – approximately 4 hours – was devoted to debating and passing SB191, the bill establishing a two-year college board.
The Senate adjourned for the week just before 5 PM. The Legislature will be out of session next week, coinciding with Spring Break in most areas of the state, and will reconvene on Tuesday, March 31st. I will resume the blog at that time.
