Governor Ivey signs wine delivery, daylight saving time bills into law
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WAFF) - Thursday was a busy day in Montgomery as Governor Ivey signed a few bills into law.
The first of those was House Bill 437, the wine shipment bill.
“I want to first thank Representative Terri Collins for putting this legislation forward because it is certainly something the people of Alabama want available to them,” Gov. Ivey said. “Thank you to all involved in putting together a good, clean bill. We are moving Alabama with the times, and I am proud to officially make the wine shipment bill law.”
HB 437 is sponsored by Rep. Terri Collins who represents District 8 (House), which covers parts of Morgan County.
Cheers to that, Alabama!
Ivey also signed Senate Bill 388 into law, the Daylight Saving Bill. This is a federal law, so if Congress makes amends to it, Alabama would adopt Daylight Saving Time statewide
Lastly, Ivey signed Senate Bill 193 into law. SB 193 will add appropriations from the Education Trust Fund Advancement and Technology Fund to various school systems, colleges and universities in the state.
Ivey said it is a top priority of hers to invest in local schools.
“Investing in Alabama’s students in a productive way is investing in our future. It is critical, now more than ever, to find ways to improve our students’ learning journeys, and I am proud to officially put pen to paper on Senate Bill 193 to put funds into much-needed projects in our schools. As long as I am your governor, putting a greater emphasis on our schools will be a top priority.”
