Alabama governor signs wine delivery, daylight saving time bills into law

SHARE NOW

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on Thursday signed three bills into law, including legislation for supplemental appropriations for education, wine delivery and daylight saving time.

Senate Bill 193

The bill for supplemental appropriations from the Education Trust Fund Advancement and Technology Fund to various school systems, colleges and universities, as well as other entities.

“Investing in Alabama’s students in a productive way is investing in our future,” Ivey said. “It is critical, now more than ever, to find ways to improve our students’ learning journeys, and I am proud to officially put pen to paper on Senate Bill 193 to put funds into much-needed projects in our schools. As long as I am your governor, putting a greater emphasis on our schools will be a top priority.”

House Bill 437

The wine shipment bill, sponsored by Rep. Terri Collins, was approved this session after years of debate. The new law will allow wineries to obtain a direct wine shipper license from the ABC Board to ship limited quantities of wine directly to Alabama residents 21 and older.

“I want to first thank Representative Terri Collins for putting this legislation forward, because it is certainly something the people of Alabama want available to them,” Ivey said. “Thank you to all involved in putting together a good, clean bill. We are moving Alabama with the times, and I am proud to officially make the wine shipment bill law.”
