This bill would prohibit the Alabama State Law Enforcement Agency from suspending the driver's license of an individual for failure to pay a fine, penalty, fee, or court costs associated with a conviction of certain traffic offenses if the court determines a driver to be indigent. 

We support this bill because people who are poor and struggling to pay off fines and fees need their driver's licenses to get to their jobs, schools, and homes. 

The bill was pre-filed on January 25, 2019 and assigned to the Judiciary Committee in the Senate.
