In April I advised that Representative Jimmy Martin introduced Alabama House Bill 181 on February 11, 2016, for the regulation of public adjusters in Alabama.

The Bill was later “indefinitely postponed” and the legislative session concluded May 16, 2016.

Thus, Alabama will not be licensing public adjusters this year.

Alabama policyholders as well as representatives should start reaching out to their local legislators now to stress the importance of legislation similar to Bill 181 being adopted into law in the 2017 Legislative Session.
