The resolution received 89% of the vote from committee members.
- A resolution calling for party registration and closing the primary elections. The measure received 81% of the vote from committee members.
- A resolution calling for the state to simplify the adoption process and lower associated costs. The measure received 97% of the vote from committee members.
- A resolution urging prison officials and the parole board to encourage prisoners to obtain a GED and/or vocational training before they are released in order to combat recidivism. The measure passed on a voice vote.
- A resolution requesting lawmakers to enact legislation codifying and protecting parental rights. The measure passed on a voice vote.
All adopted resolutions can be viewed or downloaded via the state party’s website at www.algop.org.
Alabama Republican Party Chair John Wahl issued the following statement:
“We had an extremely successful weekend and accomplished what we set out to do. I look forward to working with our candidates, elected officials and voters to win races across the state of Alabama and help take back the House and Senate.
“Concerning the resolution in support of President Trump, the Mar-a-Lago raid is just one more example of the federal government holding Republicans and Democrats to different standards. This use of force was uncalled for and incredibly disrespectful of a former president. Our membership stands with President Trump as he faces this injustice.”
