In preparation for the 2011 regular session of the Alabama Legislature, which begins on Tuesday, March 1, several prominent business and trade associations in the State have released their 2011 legislative agendas. These agendas feature both new and renewed tax measures and incentives. The 5,000 member
Business Council of Alabama (“BCA”) (www.bcatoday.org) and the 4,000 member Alabama Retail Association (“ARA”) (www.alabamaretail.org) state legislative agendas each focus on state and local tax proposals. In addition, the Birmingham Business Alliance (“BBA”), successor to the Birmingham Regional
Chamber of Commerce (www.birminghambusinessalliance.com), also released its legislative agenda recently, advocating some of the same measures as the BCA and the ARA.
