Montgomery, AL. – The Alabama House Democratic Caucus proudly invites the media and interested members of the public to attend the Press Conference that will be held virtually and in-person on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 in the State House Press Room at 1PM CST. The Press Conference will feature the House Democrats’ Legislative Agenda entitled “Pro-Growth * Pro-Innovation * Pro-Alabama.”
On January 5, 2022, the Alabama House Republican Caucus presented their agenda, “Standing Tall for Alabama”. According to House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels, “I’m confused as to why they are calling it ‘Standing Tall’ when so much of it is clearly ‘Standing Wrong’ for Alabama. For example, a centerpiece of their agenda is to ban Critical Race Theory in Alabama knowing that it’s not even taught here. It’s really just doublespeak and double standards. So, are they saying we can memorialize the Confederacy, but we can’t speak about what they fought for? Not only does it not make any sense, but how on earth does this do anything to move Alabama forward?”
Rep. Daniels commented further, “The Republican agenda is also ‘standing wrong for Alabama’ when they talk about permitless gun carry. It’s opposed by law enforcement across the board. Why would we make it easier for a bad guy to have access to a gun? Hopefully, people will see the obvious contrast in our agendas and understand that House Democrats advocate a pro-growth agenda that details solutions to the issues we face and, if implemented, will make Alabama healthier, more prosperous, and more inclusive.”
The event will be live-streamed on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ALHouseDems and members of the Press may use the Zoom link below to attend virtually and participate in the question and answer session following the presentation.
