A look back

By Staff
Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
The Alabama Legislature has been in session considering numerous revenue raising measures. Although satisfaction with the Legislature (and Governor) is not notably high, the decisions made by these leaders are important indeed.
1903-June 5, Whether adults in Morgan County may continue to legally purchase alcoholic beverages hinges in part on a decision to be made in this year's legislative session. Prohibitionists will make a fight for a total ban on liquor sales.
1959-June 6, The Legislature has passed a bill expanding Hartselle's city limits. There was no opposition to the measure since Morgan County's senator and representatives were supportive.
1918-June 7, John R. Sample of Hartselle and Tennis Tidwell of Albany are prominently mentioned as candidates for the Legislature in the upcoming state elections.
1927-June 8, State Representative F. E. (Gin) Burleson is opposed to the bill favored by Decatur to designate a commission to oversee the rebuilding of the county courthouse in Decatur-not Hartselle. The courthouse was destroyed by fire last fall.
1914-June 9, The Morgan County Republican Committee probably will put up candidates for the state Legislature this year but they have virtually no chance of being elected. Democrats have routinely won all offices here for about 20 years.
1930-June 10, There is a steadily increasing probability that the Legislature will before long pass a bill to require every automobile driver in the state to obtain a driver's license.
1935-June 11, Under the provisions of a bill currently before the state Legislature children who will be six years old by October 1 will be permitted to enter school at the beginning of the term this fall-that is, if there are enough funds available to operate the schools.
1939-June 11, The Legislature will soon consider a proposal to set up a teachers' retirement fund. Obviously, Morgan County school people from the superintendent on down strongly support this bill.
