Senate Bill 83 was a bill introduced to the Alabama Senate by Senator Kim Benefield which would prohibit a county or municipality from passing legislation pertaining to fertilizers, as that is within the state Department of Agriculture and Industries jurisdiction. Certain exemptions do exist and when those exemptions are claimed a county or municipality must document the rationale behind claiming the exemption and any information pertinent to the case, which would then become public record.
