The legislature represent the people.  Each citizen has a House of Representative member and a member of the Senate that represent them in Montgomery.  It is very important that your House and Senate members hear your position on issues that you have an interest in.  

 

AP&EA advocates for the Poultry industry (poultry producers, processing companies and the allied membership) in Alabama.  Decisions that affect our industry are made in Montgomery through laws and regulations every year.  It is very important that your lawmakers hear your position on these decisions.
