Welcome to the Website of the Legislative Reference Service of the State of Alabama (LRS).

LRS is the principal bill drafting and legal research office serving the Legislature of the State of Alabama. It is one of four nonpartisan agencies serving both the House of Representatives and the Senate of the Legislature of the State of Alabama, the other agencies being the Alabama Law Institute, the Legislative Fiscal Office, and the Examiners of Public Accounts.

It is our hope the site is informative and helpful to you. To that end, any suggestions you have for improvements will be appreciated.
