Alabama Ethics Commission Agrees to Live Stream Lobbyist Training
According to the memorandum filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, the Alabama Ethics Commission has agreed existing Alabama law permits lobbyists to satisfy the ethics training requirement if they participate in live training sessions on their computer, even if not physically present.
Additionally, reasonable accommodations will be made for those persons with a legitimate conflict during the time and date that live streaming is made available.
The commission will begin live streaming by May of 2017.
The commission has yet to publicly release a statement.
