As many readers know, Alabama does not currently license public adjusters. The Alabama State Bar takes the position that the actions of a public adjuster constitute the unlicensed practice of law.

However, Representative Jimmy Martin recently introduced Alabama House Bill 181 on February 11, 2016. The bill provides for the licensing and regulation of public adjusters.  

The bill has not yet been voted on in the House of Representatives but is pending to be read for the third time April 21, 2016.

I will keep an eye on the progression of this bill and whether it makes it to the Alabama Senate for a vote.
