Legislative Day shatters record!

Nearly 200 urge passage of public transit bill

It’s a good “problem” for Arise to have: Our crowds keep bursting at the seams. Supporters like you helped us break yet another Legislative Day attendance record, as 199 people came to Montgomery on Feb. 6 to speak out on public transportation and other issues vital to making Alabama better.

Your advocacy helped fuel a big policy win. Shortly after Legislative Day, the House on Feb. 22 voted 99-0 for a bill to create the Alabama Public Transportation Trust Fund and sent it to Gov. Kay Ivey. Your energy and passion are setting the stage for other wins, too. Let’s keep it going!
