Alabama transparency legislation
Transparency legislation proposed in Alabama.
House Bill 154 would prohibit the transferring of funds from one political action committee to another. It was passed in the House on February 12, 2009 and sent to the Senate as Senate Bill 207 where it has been assigned to the Constitutions and Election Committee. The Alabama legislature has passed bills banning the transfer of these funds among political action committees each year beginning in 2000, but the bills have never become law.
House Bill 295 would require the public disclosure of the names of public officials, spouses of public officials or candidates who have a contract with or are employed by the state, county, or a municipality. It was assigned to the Government Operations Committee on February 26, 2009. Its companion bill in the Senate is Senate Bill 208.
Senate Bill 207 is the companion bill to House Bill 154.
Senate Bill 353 would make any meeting in which a state party participates in the meeting subject to the state's Open Meetings Act. It is currently being held in the Governmental Affairs Committee of the Senate.
Senate Bill 399 seeks to make background checks performed on employees of secondary education institutions confidential and not subject to public records laws. It has been assigned to the Education Committee in the Senate.
