Etowah County Commissioner Jamie Grant was recently elected to serve as a member of the 2021-2022 Legislative Committee of the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA), the statewide association representing Alabama’s 67 county governments.
The Association’s Legislative Committee is composed of a chairman and a representative from each county. Grant (pictured above) will represent the interests of Etowah County on the committee and work in concert with six steering committees to formulate the association’s legislative agenda for the 2022 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature.
“Counties are a creation of the state, which means they can only do what the state authorizes them to do,” said ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield. “For this reason, counties must maintain an incredibly close working relationship with the legislature, which is why serving on this committee is a tremendous honor and responsibility.”
The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization speaking for all 67 counties with one voice.
The ACCA promotes improved county government services in Alabama, offers educational programs for county officials and their staff members, administers insurance programs for county governments and employees, offers legal advice, and represents the interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies.
