On Tuesday, March 5th, the Alabama Legislature recessed from the 2019 Regular Session for two weeks so lawmakers could go into a special session called by Governor Kay Ivey to increase gasoline taxes. The Alabama Legislature will reconvene in the 2019 Regular Session on Tuesday, March 19th. Alabama State Advocacy Day is now set for Tuesday, April 30th, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the State House at 11 South Union Street in Montgomery. Everyone with an interest in Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia is encouraged to attend. This includes everyone from our State Champions, advocates, and caregivers to anyone looking to learn more about brain heath and to identify ways to improve policies that help Alabamians who have Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia and all those who care for them.
