Our Legislative Agenda is the Alabama Grocers Association’s number one priority. Every year increased legislation is being proposed that affects our industry. The AGA has a legislative representative in Montgomery who represents the grocery industry’s interests at the state and local levels to ensure that our members are informed and have a strong voice. Weekly legislative reports are sent out for our members during the Legislative Session.
We also have extensive relationships with state government agencies and work closely with them on our members’ behalf. These include the Alabama ABC Board, Alabama Department of Public Health/WIC, Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries and the Alabama Department of Revenue, just to name a few. The AGA also has a political action fund called the SACK PAC which supports legislative candidates who are pro-business and support food industry issues.
