248 years ago today, the Marine Corps was born! Eleanor Roosevelt said it best, “The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!”
Happy birthday, Marines!

As someone who has been affected by the impacts of and a member of the AL Head and Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund Board, I am so proud of the collaboration and commitment by Alabama’s efforts to seek out and treat Alabamians who have experienced TBI and its many possible complications and provide support to their loved ones.

These students at Shades Valley JCIB and I had a great exchange about some of the issues that they and their generation are most concerned with. Whether it’s climate change, minority rights, equality, mental health, or the future of democracy, they brought an important and insightful perspective to the table. Really enjoyed speaking with this class and looking forward to the next.

Without Exception. As President Kelley Robinson proclaims, “We’re about to enter the ‘find out’ phase of politics!

We need to control the cost of health care. Medicaid expansion in Alabama and the Facilitating Accountability in Reimbursements (FAIR) Act in Congress are two ways to get that done.

The issue is that hospitals and corporate entities are quickly acquiring many independent physician practices, owning nearly 70 percent in 2021, and charging patients more money for the same services they would receive in that private office before it was purchased. This needlessly increases health....

That’s a wrap! Leadership Birmingham Class of 2023 graduated this month. Over the past 10 months, we’ve visited 36 different sites highlighting the challenges, the triumphs, the history, the culture, the diversity, the promise that makes our Magic City so uniquely hopeful and positioned to succeed. I’ve emerged from this experience with new perspective, renewed hope, and problem-solving partnerships. Most importantly, the Class of 2023 forged 53 amazing friendships with some of our community’s top nonprofit, community, and business leaders. Looking forward to rolling my sleeves up confidently knowing these fine folks want to build a better Birmingham for all who call her home.

After many years, beginning with former Rep. John Knight, there is finally broad and bipartisan support to begin the process to remove sales tax from groceries in Alabama.

100 of 105 members of the Alabama House and all 35 senators are sponsoring our bill that cuts the state sales tax on groceries and begins the process of abolishing it altogether. The almost universal support for this bill is historic and unprecedented, and we must act now.

On the floor debating the problems with HB 208, which essentially allows up to $10,000,000 dollars of your taxes to go to “Pregnancy Resource Centers” through a scheme of tax credits. These centers don’t have to provide medically accurate or scientifically proven best practices for prenatal care, don’t need to be staffed by medical personnel or qualified counselors or social workers, don’t provide any prevention resources, and don’t even have to be open more than 20 hours a week.
