Today the Alabama House and Senate held a Joint Session to honor the retirement of United States Senator Richard Shelby. His tenure came back full circle to the Old House Chamber, 51 years after he served in the Alabama Legislature. Thank you, Senator Shelby, for your service. #Our67
Tuesday evening we were honored to attend Governor Kay Ivey's State of the State Address. A refreshing theme resonated in the Old House Chamber - Alabama’s business climate is strong. Economic development is a team effort, and our Governor has worked with the public and private sector to foster an environment conducive for businesses, small and large.
Quality of life and education go hand-in-hand with economic development efforts. Governor Ivey reaffirmed a commitment to education with a goal that Alabama’s K-12 students will rank within the top 30 states for reading and math proficiency by 2026.
Governor Ivey called a Special Session to allocate ARPA funds and once again, cautioned recipients that this is one-time funding and not to be used as a mechanism to fund positions or maintenance requests that will need ongoing revenue to support.
