Two weeks ago, the Alabama State Senate passed the T.J. Atchison Spinal Cord Injury Research Act sponsored by Senator Marc Keahey (D-Grove Hill), which has been transmitted to the House of Representatives. Senator Keahey’s bill will create and fund a program aimed toward discovering a cure for spinal cord injuries. In Alabama, the cost of care for spinal cord injuries is approximately $515 million per year and the cost to the State of Alabama in Medicaid and indigent care is approximately $143 million per year.
These are the types of bills that Alabama Democrats are proposing in the Legislature. While the Alabama Republican Party is doing everything it can to wage a war on women and destroy the rights of the vulnerable; we, as Democrats, are working tirelessly to ensure that no matter your lot in life you still have a voice and someone is still listening.
Can you sign up as a monthly contributor of $5 or $10 a month? Help us let Alabamians know that Alabama Democrats are fighting for them and producing meaningful and important legislation.
The Republican Party’s misguided priorities will leave this state in ruins. We were able to stop the forced vaginal ultra-sound bill – but it isn’t going to end with that. Donate to the Alabama Democratic Party and we can tell the Republicans that Alabama Democrats stand for all Alabamians, not just those in the highest income bracket. Help us by giving us the resources to highlight our Democratic achievements in the legislature. We can’t keep letting the Republicans tell both sides of the story.
