Bills Die in Alabama Legislature

By  | 

One of the bills that apparently will die in the regular legislative session is a measure to change Alabama's system of property reappraisals to every four years.

The bill was one of the items on the Republican agenda for the session.
Traditionally, property was reappraised in Alabama every four years. The reappraisals were changed to every year by the Riley administration.

The sponsor, Representative Greg Albritton of Excel, described the annual tax reappraisals as a tax increase that was never approved by Alabama voters.

Another measure that appears destined for the dead bills' list is proposed legislation to allow local governments to install cameras at traffic lights to catch motorists running red lights.
