Access to broadband is a request that virtually every major corporation desires when locating within our state. Earlier in the year, Governor Kay Ivey signed the Alabama Broadband Accessibility Act, which authorized the creation of a broadband accessibility grant program. The bill, sponsored by Senator Clay Scofield and Representative Donnie Chesteen, also created the Alabama Broadband Accessibility Fund. This is a great start to achieving the goal of bringing accessibility to all areas of Alabama.
The United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA) is in the process of designing a pilot program to bring broadband infrastructure to rural areas within Alabama. Federal assistance for the infrastructure, combined with state assistance as well as private sector investments, is a team effort that helps projects come to fruition and ultimately enhances the quality of life for Alabamians.

Distribution centers, one of the State of Alabama’s foundational business targets, provide products and services that support a myriad of industries within our state. The Walmart Distribution Center in Irvington, one of six distribution centers in the United States, will be a significant addition to the estimated $22.4 billion economic impact generated last year by the Alabama State Port Authority.
At last week’s economic development conference hosted by the EDAA, Port Authority CEO Jimmy Lyons shared with us that empty shipping containers are a much-needed commodity in Alabama. When fully operational, Walmart will carry in approximately 50,000 containers per year, which will thus create a surplus of empty cargo containers that exporters can use (and therefore reduce their costs). As a result, Alabama’s port will retain business that would otherwise divert to alternate ports due to a lack of containers. Keeping more business at home - this great news for Mobile County, The Port, and our entire state.
Thank you to VIP Shoals Magazine for featuring Tomato Sandwich Day in downtown Tuscumbia, held last month on the lawn of the Colbert County Courthouse. #Our67

Through collaboration and leadership, Alabama has fostered an environment conducive for economic growth. Governor Ivey, the Alabama Department of Commerce, and thousands of members of the public and private sector work daily to make Alabama a place where a myriad of industries can grow and prosper.
The EDAA Summer Conference provides an opportunity for economic development professionals from our 67 counties to learn and share best practices. We are making history in the state of Alabama. When members of a community have the opportunity to collaborate, cities and towns are built.
