The Alabama Legislature met for the final days of the 2022 Regular Session on Tuesday, April 5 through Thursday, April 7, adjourning Sine Die close to midnight.

As there is additional money to come to Alabama from the American Rescue Plan Act, it is anticipated that a Special Session will be called by the Governor for the Legislature to appropriate those funds. Speculation centers around late June or August.

In the event a Special Session is not called by the Governor, the next meeting of the Legislature will be the 2023 Organizational Session that will convene on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. The 2023 Regular Session will convene on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.

There were a number of bills passed in the final days of the Session which must be signed by the Governor within 10 days or they receive a Pocket Veto. She signed and sent to the Secretary of State all but one, a Colbert County local bill.
