Alabama State Senate rejects immigration law repeal attemptPublished: May 10, 2012 9:00 am By: Brian Lyman
"The Alabama Senate began consideration of changes to the state’s immigration law Wednesday by turning back an attempt to repeal it and receiving a list of changes approved by one of the bill’s original sponsors.
At press time late Wednesday night, no vote on those changes developed by Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardendale, and Rep. Micky Hammon, R-Decatur, had taken place, and legislators said they expected a vote to come today.
The chamber voted 20 to 14 to reject a proposal from Sen. Billy Beasley, D-Clayton, that would have repealed the law, known as HB 56."
