2011 Policy Priorities
For better or worse, policy decisions at all levels of government affect everyday lives. ACPP analyzes existing and proposed state and federal policies to assess their impact on low- and middle-income Alabamians. Because our policy work is supported by foundation grants, we cannot use those funds to urge voters to support or oppose policy proposals.
ACPP members have chosen the following issues as policy priorities for 2011. (The first two are permanent priorities; the remaining five reflect this year's concerns.)
Other policy concerns:
ACPP will monitor all proposed legislation to evaluate its potential impact on low-income Alabamians. (For example, we could support a state minimum wage or creation of a housing trust fun. We also could oppose bills that would erose existing protections.) The legislative committee of the board may approve membership action on issues that may arise.
