Medicaid expansion, payday lending reform among Arise's 2015 issue priorities

Medicaid expansion, payday and auto title lending reform, and low-income housing will be among the goals on ACPP’s 2015 legislative agenda. ACPP and Alabama Arise members selected the groups issue priorities at their annual meeting Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, in Montgomery. Other issue priorities include tax reform, public transportation, repeal of the Alabama Accountability Act, and an end to the state's lifetime SNAP eligibility ban for people with a past felony drug conviction.

"This is our blueprint for a better Alabama," ACPP executive director Kimble Forrister said. "Our members see in their communities that too many families struggle to afford basics like food, health care, housing and transportation. These proposals would help hard-working Alabamians meet their needs and build a better life for their children."
