Governor Ivey Conducts Ceremonial Bill Signing of REALTOR® Bill
July 30, 2019
Governor Kay Ivey met with Alabama REALTORS® for a ceremonial bill signing of the REALTOR® License Plate Bill on Wednesday, July 24. Alabama REALTORS® President Stacey Sanders, Treasurer Slade McElroy, and Secretary Wes Grant joined REALTORS® Patsy Gooch, Patience Maples, and Robbie Maples as well as Representative Kyle South (R-Fayette) for the event.
The new law allocates the proceeds from sales of REALTOR® license plates to the Alabama REALTORS® Foundation. Through the Foundation, Alabama REALTORS® supports disaster relief efforts throughout the state, provides for other benevolent efforts for REALTOR® members, and offers educational scholarships for children of REALTORS®. The change in distribution is effective January 1, 2020.
We are extremely grateful to Senator Jimmy Holley (R-Enterprise) for carrying this bill in the Senate, to Rep. Kyle South for handling the bill on the House floor, and to Gov. Kay Ivey for hosting us in the State Capitol for the bill signing ceremony.
