    Bookmark It: Find Your Legislators

    If you ever need help finding a list of your county’s legislative delegation or contact info (phone, fax or email) for your legislators, ACCA’s Legislative Tracking System has a shortcut that is very helpful. The County Delegations page lists all 67 counties, with links to each county’s elected representatives in Montgomery and in Washington, D.C.

     

    Next Webinar Just a Week Away

    Make your plans to join county leaders throughout the state for ACCA’s next Legislative Webinar, set for 10:30 a.m. Monday, April 13. The 30-minute session will be crammed full of all the latest info affecting counties from the Alabama State House. Watch your email for a registration link coming soon.

     

    Checks in the mail

    The counties participating in the “pilot project” as part of the Association’s income tax set-off will receive their first payment checks this week.  More than $64,000 will be returned to counties with the second payment scheduled for July.  All counties will be eligible to participate in the debt recovery program in 2016.

     

    Get moving

    One third of the 2015 legislative session is now behind us.  Counties wishing to introduce and pass local laws are encouraged to be aware of the requirement that all local bills be advertised for four weeks before introduction. With the session set to end no later than June 14 – and perhaps earlier – counties should move quickly on any local legislation.
