10 Mar Legislative Update and ACTION ALERT8!
Legislative Update: CALL NOW! Senate Bill 211 is on the move!!!
The Children’s Equal Access Act (SB211), bipartisan and pro-family legislation passed in the Senate March 8, 2018 (17 Yea, 8 Nays) and moves to the House. Unfortunately a committee amendment was placed on the Children’s Equal Access Act that weakens the intent of the bill. So, there’s still work to be done. You can read the amendment here.
We would like to give a special thanks to Senator Larry Stutts, the sponsor of the Children’s Equal Access Act and members of the Alabama Family Rights Association Advisory Committee and countless volunteers over the last seven years for their selfless service.
Action Needed: We would ask individuals to take a moment and call the Senate members that voted yes. Communicate to them that you deeply appreciate their commitment to doing what’s right in Montgomery by putting children and families first. As a reminder, please always be respectful and courteous with your communications.

If desired you can access the bill and see the complete Roll Call vote here but we would like to remind you our focus must now immediately shift to the House of Representatives.
Thank you for standing up for families and innocent children who do not have a voice in this matter. Together, we will make a difference and let our voices and concerns be heard in Montgomery. Watch for a similar action request soon for your State Representative when the bill is placed on the House Judiciary Committee calendar.
