APPEARS IN Hunting

Legislative Update for Alabama

Friday, March 19, 2010

On Tuesday, March 9, the Alabama Senate passed House Bill 330 by a vote of 34-0.  HB330 is now awaiting consideration by Governor Bob Riley (R).

HB330, authored by State Representative Craig Ford (D-28), would require that the state maintain at least the same level of available public hunting land that currently exists.  It would require that additional lands be opened to hunting if land that is currently open to hunting is closed.

Please continue to contact Governor Riley TODAY and respectfully urge him to sign HB330.  The Governor can be reached by phone at (334) 242-7100 or visit
"contact governor" to send email.  The deadline for signature is Thursday, March 25. 

House Bill 2 is still pending action in the Senate. Sponsored by State Representative Jeremy Oden (R-11), HB2 would repeal the section of the Alabama statute that prohibits the possession, sale, receipt, or use of short barreled rifles and shotguns.  These firearms are already legal under federal law when properly registered.

The Alabama State House Commerce Committee will be considering Senate Bill 360 (the companion bill to House Bill 364) on Wednesday, March 24.  This bill passed the Senate last week by a vote of 26 to 2. 

Introduced by State Senator Roger Bedford (D-6), SB360 would permit a law-abiding individual to store firearms in a locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by an employer or a business that he or she frequents.  This legislation would protect your right to keep a firearm in your car for self-defense, hunting, or target shooting before or after work.

Also, please contact your State Senator TODAY at (334) 242-7800 and respectfully urge him or her to support HB2.
  Contact information for your Senator can be found here.  Finally, please continue to contact the members of the House Commerce Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB360 and pass it out of committee.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
