The Legislative Function of the League

In every session of the Alabama Legislature since 1935, the League has served as the guardian and the voice of municipal interests. Through the years, League legislative programs have produced more than 400 general acts which directly benefit municipal government and its citizens. Cities and towns in Alabama now receive many millions of dollars each year in state-shared revenues as a direct result of the League's legislative efforts. In addition to working for passage of League legislative proposals, the League staff continually monitors and reports on all types of legislation, at both the state and federal levels, which may affect cities and towns.
