Retail Report: Ask Your House Member to Vote for SB316

Delivery license reform took another step toward reality this week and is on its way to the Alabama House of Representatives.

The Alabama Senate on Thursday voted for a $25,000 threshold before a $100 delivery license is required. As it stands now, a $100 delivery license is required if a retailer delivers just $1 of merchandise.

Thank you for talking to your senator about this needed reform. The next step for SB316 is consideration by a House committee.

Call or email your representative NOW and ask them to vote for SB316.

If you need inspiration for talking with your representative, read more about the bill and watch the video below featuring three Alabama Retail members telling why they support this legislation.

You are the best advocate for the change you want. Share your story with your representative. Ask fellow retailers who deliver to do the same. If they don’t know who their representative is, tell them to just plug in their address and zip code plus four here.
