Attorney General's Opinions

Opinion 2018-009 November 21, 2017

The Alabama Memorial Preservation Act of 2017 does not render void a vote by the Demopolis City Council to alter the remains of a Confederate monument that ceased to exist before the effective date of the act.

  

Opinion 2018-008 November 21, 2017

The Department of Corrections (“DOC”) can rename the Decatur Community Based Facility and Community Work Center because it is not a memorial building as defined by the Alabama Memorial Preservation Act of 2017.

 

Absent the passage of new legislation, DOC cannot rename the Frank Lee Youth Center because it is a memorial building not eligible for a waiver because it is over 40 years old.
