Saturday, the Alabama Republican Party State Executive Committee met in Montgomery for their annual winter meeting where they voted to pass several resolutions.
The Committee passed a resolution urges the Alabama State Legislature to pass legislation in the 2018 session that would ban all abortions of babies which have been diagnosed with (or possibly have) Down Syndrome.
The Committee passed a resolution requesting that the Alabama State legislature “pass legislation to strengthen the provisions of HB 56” and asks that all Alabama elected officials “strongly support the provisions of HB 56 which have not been specifically blocked by liberal federal judges.”
The Committee passed a resolution stating that the Alabama Republican Executive Committee opposes “any proposed ‘DACA’ bill which grants amnesty” and asks the Alabama Republican Congressional Delegation to “oppose, vote against and/or filibuster such legislation.”
The Committee passed a resolution asking the Alabama State Legislature to “pass legislation in the 2018 session to ban all abortions of babies beyond 20 weeks of fertilization, unless the mother’s life is at stake.”
The Committee passed a resolution calling for Amending the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (“FISA”). The Executive Committee called on the Alabama Congressional Delegation “to introduce legislation to amend the FISA law so the abuses which occurred under the Obama Administration can never happen under any present or future Administration.”
Those resolutions were all brought to the resolution committee.
Three days before the meeting, American evangelist Billy Graham died. Executive Committee member Perry Hooper Jr. introduced a resolution honoring the life of Graham from the floor of the meeting. The committee agreed and passed Hooper’s resolution to honor Graham.
This resolution states “that the Alabama Republican Party honors the life of the Reverend Billy Graham and recognizes his decades of public service and his commitment to furthering the faith of Christians around the world.”
The Capitol City Young Republicans thanked Hooper for introducing the resolution.
The Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee meets twice a year. The Summer meeting of the committee will be in August in Tuscaloosa.
