Alabama Legislature

Bills outlining a spending plan for Alabama’s remaining $1 billion in American Rescue Plan (ARPA) money and paying the Alabama Trust fund could head to a Senate vote in the coming days.

Rep. Rex Reynolds [R-Huntsville] and 10 other House members – among them Baldwin County representatives Alan Baker [R-Brewton] and Frances Holk-Jones [R-Foley] – introduced the bill on Mar. 8, the same day Gov. Kay Ivey opened the special session to appropriate the state’s COVID-19 relief funds before the end of 2024.
