Legislative Update


The Alabama Legislature meets in annual Regular Sessions, each of which can consist of no more than 30 Legislative (meeting) days, within a 105 Calendar day period. By statute, the dates for convening of annual sessions, for each year of a Quadrennium (4-year period), are as follows:
  • 1st Year: First Tuesday in March
  • 2nd Year: First Tuesday in February
  • 3rd Year: First Tuesday in February
  • 4th Year: 2nd Tuesday in January

Special Sessions may be called at any time, by the Governor, for emergency or extraordinary reasons. Special Sessions can consist of no more than 12 Legislative (meeting) days, within a 30 Calendar day period. In his/her Proclaimation, calling the Legislature into such session, the Governor will state the date and time for convening of such session.

Once in session, whether Regular or Special, the Legislature regulates its own schedule of meeting days and times for convening. Normally, the schedule of a Regular Session consists of Legislative (meeting) days on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with Committee meetings held on Wednesdays. However, please note, that this schedule can change from week to week, and that Committees may meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while their respective body is not in actual session.

Therefore: Before planning a trip or meeting with your respective Legislator either at his office in Montgomery or in his respective district, it is best to make an appointment and to be aware of the planning meeting days and times of convening. You may do so by calling the Senate, at (334) 242-7800, and the House of Representatives, at (334) 242-7600. After hours, you may call these numbers to receive a recorded message, stating the day and time each body will next meet.  In addition, please consult your legislators’ home pages, at www.legislature.state.al.us/house/house.html for the House of Representatives, or www.legislature.state.al.us/senate/senate.html for the Senate. If you are unsure of who your legislators are, you may also use the Zip Code Lookup contained on these pages as well.
