Alabama legislative committees meeting this morning

Posted: Updated:

Several legislative committees will meet in Montgomery Thursday.

The Senate Judicial Committee will look at HB378, sponsored by Merika Coleman-Evans that would make any assault "to persons 18 years of age on school property, school bus, or school-sponsored function, intent to cause physical injury," a second-degree offense.

The House Judicial Committee will look at SB202, sponsored by Senator Roger Bedford.  It would "authorize a person to petition a circuit or district court to have the record of certain felony or  misdemeanor offenses, violations, or traffic violations expunged when the person is found not guilty or the charges 15 are dismissed."

The House Rules Committee will look at SJR109, a resolution out of the Senate that urges the State Board of Education "to refrain from accepting any federal funds tied to the Common Core State Standards Initiative until a full and open debate."

Other committees will look at Sunday alcohol sales in the city of Weaver as well authorizing the city of Alabaster to establish a civil service system for employees.

On Wednesday, the Senate Constitution and Elections Committee pushed through a bill that would make the voter registration deadline come sooner.  Instead of 10 days before and election, people must register 17 days before an election.
