Alabama Governor Signs Bill Protecting Confederate Monuments

Alabama Governor Signs Bill Protecting Confederate Monuments

For example, the Confederate Memorial Monument at the state Capitol grounds would be protected from removal.

Officially the legislation prohibits the "relocation, removal, alteration, renaming or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial building, memorial street or monument located on public property which has been in place for 40 or more years".

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) this week signed legislation that will preempt cities and counties from removing monuments to the Confederacy from public property, over the objections of black lawmakers and civil rights groups.

Mr. Allen, the Alabama bill's lead sponsor, previously accused New Orleans of giving in to "a wave of political correctness".

The bill, which passed in the final hours of the state's 2017 legislative session Friday, allows CPMs to deliver babies in Alabama homes.

Landrieu also made a stirring reflection on the situation by noting that despite flaunting "history" as their motivation, these southern cities had no monuments to slavery or to the suffering of black people under decades of oppression.

The bill does not provide an explicit option to remove a monument 40 years or older. An entity that makes changes without a committee waiver would be fined $25,000 for each violation.

Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Republican attorney William B. Sellers to the Alabama Supreme Court on Thursday, bringing the court back to its normal size after the ethics case against former chief justice Roy Moore. "It's about protecting everyone's history".

Confederate monuments in Alabama aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

Officials in Mobile expressed concerns that the broad definition of "architecturally significant building" - which the law calls a building on public property that by its "very nature, inherent design, or structure constitutes a monument" - would make it hard to restore, fix or rehabilitate buildings for economic development.
