Senate panel to consider term limits, military voting and removing racist language
Sen. Bryan Taylor, R-Prattville, said those are among the bills that will be considered during a meeting at 11 a.m. Tuesday in room 609A of the State House.
Sen. Trip Pittman, R-Montrose, has introduced a bill that would implement term limits for lawmakers.
Sen. Arthur Orr, R-Decatur, has proposed allowing voters to decide if they want to remove racist language from the state constitution.
Their colleague, Gerald Dial of Lineville, has introduced a bill that would provide for members of the military to vote electronically.
The committee will consider several other issues including requiring a supermajority of the Legislature to override a veto by the governor, a bill related to displaying the Ten Commandments, and requiring robo-calls to include a disclosure of who is paying for it.
