The Alabama Legislature convenes in March, and AARP Alabama plans to push several issues during the 2023 legislative session.
Among the priority topics: fraud, which contributed to nearly 60,000 fraud and other complaints in Alabama in 2021; financial security; elder abuse; support for family caregivers; and expansion of high-speed internet in the state.
In 2022, AARP Alabama helped pass a law that creates a registry of people convicted of elder abuse. The law requires nursing homes and home health agencies to use the registry as part of their hiring processes.
