  • AG weighs in on immigration
    The attorney general has issued two guidance memorandums on the new immigration law. These memos, and other related resources, can be found at http://ago.alabama.gov/Page-Immigration.

    ACCA is “brand” new
    We launched a new logo featuring the tagline, “67 Counties, One Voice” at last week’s conference. Additional lapel pins featuring the new logo will be given out at district meetings in January. You can view the new logo by going to www.alabamacounties.org. That’s right – our web address is changing too, as are the ends of staff email addresses (i.e. sgowan@alabamacounties.org). But don’t worry, the old web and email addresses will still work for few weeks during the transition.

    Getting ready for the 2012 session
    ACCA members approved the 2012 Legislative Program (PDF) and Legislative Priorities at the Legislative Conference last week. It’s going to be a busy year!

    A correction for the 2012 calendars
    Please correct your 2012 ACCA calendar. Confederate Memorial Day should be on April 23, 2012. For counties that did not pick up their calendars in Auburn last week, ACCA will mail them out this week.

    Streamlined Sales Tax comments
