2017 policy priorities
For better or worse, policy decisions at all levels of government affect everyday lives. Arise analyzes existing and proposed state and federal policies to assess their impact on low- and middle-income Alabamians. And every year, our members gather together in Montgomery to choose which of those issues will be our priorities for the coming year.
Arise members have chosen the following issues as policy priorities for 2017. (The first two are permanent priorities; the remaining six reflect this year's concerns.)
Arise monitors all proposed legislation to evaluate its potential impact on low-income Alabamians. The Arise board's legislative committee may approve membership action on other issues that emerge throughout the year.
