The Alabama Senate will be finishing up their 2021 session this month with several important bills now sitting at the House, awaiting floor action. Of these are the Gaming Bill and the Medical Marijuana bill. If any changes are made to the bills by the House, they will return to the Senate for one week. Once there, the Senate will either concur with the changes, or they will go to Conference Committee. This committee is comprised of three members from the House and three members from the Senate. Both parties will discuss changes, hopefully reaching a compromise, wherein the bills will then go back to both bodies for a vote to concur with the agreement.
