MONTGOMERY, Alabama: Representative Mike Ball may introduce legislation in the 2010 session to make Alabama the 25th initiative and referendum state. Ball has introduced legislation calling for this in past regular sessions, introducing HB279 in 2009, and may do the same when legislature meets again.

Initiative and referendum would allow the voters in Alabama to introduce proposed ballot measures and send them to a statewide ballot after following appropriate procedures such as obtaining the required amount of signatures.[1]
