This bill was introduced by Rep. Hill on February 6, 2020. It was assigned to the House Judiciary committee where it was favorably passed out of committee on March 4, 2020. It was sent to the Alabama House and carried over on the House floor on March 10, 2020. Amendments, which are needed due to federal laws that allegedly stop funding to key state departments if fines are not collected, are gutting the bill and limiting the circumstances in which this bill could apply.
