Legislative Update and ACTION ALERT3!

Legislative Alert: CALL NOW! Action is needed today to move Senate Bill 211 out of committee!!!!

Unfortunately, Senate Bill 211, a bipartisan bill known as the “Children’s Equal Access Act,” was not heard during the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting as expected due to time restraints.

The sponsor of the Children’s Equal Access Act was not happy with this situation and immediately addressed his concerned with the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Good news! Senate Bill 211 “Children’s Equal Access Act,” is placed on the Senate Judiciary Committee calendar for a second time on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 1:00 pm.

  • The Children’s Equal Access Act aims to maximize a child’s time with both parents during a divorce or separation. You can read and share the Talking Points here.
  • We would like to give a special thanks to Senator Larry Stutts, the sponsor of SB 211 for standing up for the voiceless children in Alabama. Thereby, further reflecting his desire to ensure SB 211 is priority for legislators in Alabama.
  • If you have or have not contacted the 13-committee members, no worries. We ask you to take a moment to contact as many of these committee members as you can and urge them to vote “YES” on SB 211. Communicate to them that you deeply appreciate their commitment to doing what’s right in Montgomery; by putting children and families first, please vote “YES” on SB211.
