  • Honoring Korean War Veterans

    From an Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs news release:

    The Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs is seeking Korean
    War veterans for the Korean Ambassador of Peace medal. The Korean government
    would like to show their respect and gratitude for the devotion and sacrifice of the U.S. troops during the Korean War by presenting the medals to veterans.

    Sometimes called “The Forgotten War,” in part because its memory is often
    overshadowed by World War II and the Vietnam War, it began after some 75,000 North Korean soldiers poured into South Korea on June 25, 1950. By the time the war ended in July 1953, an estimated 5 million soldiers and civilians had died, including more than 700 from Alabama.

    South Korea’s government began offering the medals in 1975 to veterans who visited
    the country through its “Revisit Program,” which was meant to show gratitude for the
    vets’ service, as well as see how the country has prospered since the armistice was
    signed.

    In Alabama, there are 21,991 Korean War veterans, according to the U.S. Department
    of Veterans Affairs. But the state does not have a list of their names and addresses, so
    has to rely on word of mouth and local media to alert veterans to the honor.

    Veterans should call 334-242-5084 to receive an application for the medal. A medal
    presentation ceremony will be held at a later date.

  • AG Steve Marshall, CVS Health Announce Safe Drug Disposal Program in Alabama

    Excerpt from an Alabama Attorney General news release:

    Attorney General Steve Marshall joined with CVS Health Chief Policy and External Affairs Officer Thomas Moriarty, Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale, Homewood Mayor Scott McBrayer and Homewood Police Chief Tim Ross today to announce a safe medication disposal program in Alabama.

    CVS Health has provided in-store drug disposal units at five of its stores in Alabama and also has equipped 36 law enforcement agencies with on-site disposal units to provide a regularly available means for people to properly discard unused medications.
    “It is extremely dangerous to keep unused prescription drugs on hand when they are no longer needed,” said Attorney General Marshall. “Many of these are controlled substances, and opioids, in particular, can bring tragic results. We have had tremendous success with Drug Take-Back days in Alabama and these permanent collection sites provided by CVS Health are a valuable asset because now there is a way for people to safely dispose of drugs year-round.”

    Alabama ranks first in the nation for the number of painkiller prescriptions per capita, and Attorney General Marshall has made fighting opioid abuse a cornerstone of his administration. He serves as co-chair of the Alabama Opioid Overdose and Addiction Council which issued a comprehensive action plan last December. In February of this year he filed a lawsuit against Purdue Pharma for the harm caused by its reckless marketing and sales of opioids.

    “CVS Health is dedicated to addressing and preventing opioid abuse in the communities we serve in Alabama and across the country,” said Moriarty. “Expanding our safe medication disposal program to CVS Pharmacy locations in Alabama is one of the many initiatives we support to fulfill that commitment and our purpose of helping people on their path to better health.”

    Homewood Mayor Scott McBrayer said, “I would like to thank CVS Health for choosing Homewood to officially launch their safe drug disposal program in Alabama. Keeping unused prescription drugs off the streets and out of the hands of those who might be harmed by them requires a team effort. Pharmacies, law enforcement and every citizen has a key role to play. I appreciate CVS Health for taking steps to reduce the likelihood of accidental poisoning and drug abuse in our community by making it easy to dispose of unused and expired medicines while shopping at our local CVS Pharmacy.”

  • Rep. Byrne Calls for Rural Hospital Relief

    Excerpt from a Congressman Byrne news release:

    Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) recently partnered with a bipartisan group of Members of Congress in urging Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar to fix the Medicare Area Wage Index, which severely hurts Alabama’s hospitals.

    Alabama has the lowest Medicare reimbursement rate in the country. Based in large part on the Wage Index, seventy-five percent of Alabama’s hospitals are operating at a loss with an average median operating margin of negative 6.5 percent. The problem is worse in rural Alabama, where hospitals have a median operating margin of negative 12.2 percent. Unless changes are made to the Wage Index formula, the problem will continue to get worse and additional Alabama hospital closure is likely.

    Congressman Byrne said: “We are facing a medical crisis in rural America. For too long, the Medicare Area Wage Index has been gamed by hospitals in very affluent parts of the country at the expense of rural America. Congress granted CMS wide authority to administer the Wage Index, and it is time the system be reformed in order to ensure continued access to hospital care for those in rural Alabama and rural areas throughout the United States.”

Fighting violent crime is a hallmark issue for Attorney General Steve Marshall

(Marshall Campaign)

Steve Marshall remains unwavering in fighting violent crime and safeguarding the people of Alabama. Last year, Marshall launched the “Initiative on Violent Crime” from the Attorney General’s Office, which focuses on reclaiming, restoring and reviving Alabama communities.

“I am determined to reclaim our neighborhoods from the scourge of violent crime, restore the rule of law, and ultimately, see these communities revived. We are accomplishing these goals through targeting our worst-hit areas, establishing strategic partnerships with federal, state, and local law enforcement, renewing investments in crime-fighting resources and increasing training opportunities for those on the front lines.”

“We are also listening to the needs of victims of violent crime. As a result, we advocated for and secured the historic passage of the Fair Justice Act to ensure that capital murderers are limited in their ability to file endless frivolous appeals that cause families to relive their horror again and again, while losing faith in the justice system.”

139

Over the past twelve months, violent crime has dropped by 15% in Montgomery alone. Marshall’s proven commitment to fight violent crime has the potential to positively impact the lives of Alabamians for generations to come. As Marshall said after 11 violent offenders were captured with the assistance of his office, “criminals should be on notice—we will not tolerate this menace to our citizens.”

Steve Marshall is a voice for the most vulnerable, standing up for the rights and protection of victims. He is tough on crime and works diligently every day to see that justice is served in our state. He is committed to standing up for what is right and will always put the well being of Alabama first. With Steve Marshall in office, Alabama is safer.

Steve Marshall resumes campaign for Attorney General

(Marshall Campaign)

To the people of Alabama,

In the week following Bridgette’s passing, I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support my family has received. Bridgette was a precious wife, mother, daughter, and friend. She was the brightest light in my life and in so many others.

As we move forward, I am choosing to honor Bridgette’s memory in all that I do. Right now, that means getting back to work and continuing to serve the people of Alabama.

101

It’s been an honor to be your Attorney General and I am committed to finishing strong in this race. I pledge to keep my campaign focused solely on the issues at hand.

With this perspective, I look forward to my final days on the campaign trail before the run-off and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the people of our state. Each and every one of you plays an important role in this chapter of my life because together, we are Alabama Strong.

Your Attorney General,

Steve Marshall

AG Steve Marshall fights Obama-era bureaucrats to keep illegal immigrants out of census count

(House Judiciary Committee)

Last week, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall was invited to testify before Congress regarding the 2020 census and the resulting loss of representation that Alabama will face.

Marshall and Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-5) filed a lawsuit last month challenging the Census Bureau’s unlawful decision to include illegal aliens in the census. If illegal immigrants are counted for purposes of apportionment, Alabama will lose both a seat in Congress and a vote in the electoral college. The result? An unlawful distribution of congressional representation where states with more illegal immigrants hold more political power. Marshall knows the people of Alabama deserve better and was pleased to make his case to Congress.

244

“Alabama is set to lose one of its seven congressional seats and one of its nine electoral votes – a seat and a vote it would not lose if illegal aliens were excluded from the apportionment base. Not only would this skewed result rob the State of Alabama and its legal residents of their rightful share of representation, but it plainly undermines the rule of law. If an individual’s presence in our country is in violation of federal law, why should the states in which they reside benefit from their illegal status?”

“The irony, of course, is that illegal aliens cannot vote; therefore, they are not the ones who gain from being included in the apportionment base. In a state in which a large share of the population cannot vote, those who do vote count more than those who live in states where a larger share of population is made up of American citizens.”

While Marshall’s suit has been praised by conservative analysts, the liberal media is in hysterics over Marshall’s efforts to exclude illegal aliens from the census. Even failed U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is involved in trying to stop him from succeeding.

Rest assured, Steve Marshall is committed to protecting Alabama’s citizens and their representation on Capitol Hill. He will continue his fight against federal overreach on every front and ensure that Alabama’s voice is not stifled in Washington.

Attorney General Steve Marshall: Taking a stand for life

(Marshall Campaign)

As Attorney General, I have no higher duty than to enforce our laws and ensure the safety of all Alabamians—and that includes the unborn. Throughout my career as a prosecutor and as your Attorney General, I have fought to protect the right to life.

While many candidates label themselves as pro-life, I have a proven track record. Alabama Citizens for Life has endorsed me for Attorney General because they know I am the only candidate in the race with the resolve to tackle this issue head on.

When I was District Attorney, I worked tirelessly to help draft and advocate for the passage of the Brody Act. The Brody Act makes it possible to prosecute an offender for two crimes if they kill or injure an unborn child during an attack on the mother. I was the first to prosecute a case under this law In Marshall County and then, just last year, I had the privilege of defending my conviction on appeal before the Alabama Supreme Court as your Attorney General.

The ACLU has attacked Alabama’s law banning the gruesome practice of dismemberment abortions and our law requiring parental consent for minors seeking an abortion and I am fighting back against them. Alabamians deserve an Attorney General who will fight to defend relentless challenges to our laws by outside liberal interest groups and that’s exactly what I am doing. We must protect the most basic right of all rights and that is the right to life.

These attacks don’t just happen in Alabama, they happen around the country. As your Attorney General, I’ve taken a stand for life beyond our borders. Just this month, the U.S. Supreme Court reviewed a brief that Alabama joined defending the First Amendment protections of a pro-life pregnancy center. We were also on the winning side of a similar case in Maryland. Last year, we supported North Carolina’s ban on abortions after 20 weeks when it was challenged in court.

As I seek a full term as your Attorney General, I am honored to partner with Alabama Citizens for Life to continue what I’ve started in fighting for the unborn.

Alabama must be on the right side of history with this issue. I hope you’ll stand for life with me as Attorney General and allow me to continue to champion the sanctity of life in Alabama and throughout the United States.

AL AG Steve Marshall leading the fight to protect your gun rights

(Marshall Campaign)

Steve Marshall is a champion for Second Amendment rights. In his first year in office, he has led the fight both in Alabama and beyond to ensure that the individual right to bear arms is protected.

One of his first official acts as Attorney General was to lead twenty-five states in standing up for the right of individuals to carry firearms outside of the home. In a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Alabama and 25 other states, Marshall questioned the constitutionality of a San Diego County gun restriction which banned citizens from possessing firearms outside of the home for self-defense. Believing the law to be a flagrant violation of Californians’ Second Amendment rights, Marshall said at the time of filing:

237

“The Constitution does not limit [the right to bear arms] to the interior of one’s own home, yet that is effectively what the sheriff of San Diego County has dictated to local residents. As a result, most of the citizens of San Diego County today cannot open carry or concealed carry outside their property, even for self-defense. This unconstitutional limitation on the Second Amendment must be challenged and I am proud to lead a 26-state court filing to the U.S. Supreme Court opposing this unlawful gun ban.”

Marshall asked the Supreme Court to reverse the ultra-liberal Ninth Circuit and strike down the California law. Marshall’s brief was joined by Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Immediately upon taking office, Steve Marshall took the lead in a case with national implications for Second Amendment rights. And this is just one example of how he’s methodically pushing back against those who want to whittle away at the right to bear arms. Throughout his time in office, Marshall has continually demonstrated his commitment to protecting our constitutional rights at the state and federal levels and gives us a clear picture of the kinds of issues he will focus on if elected in the June 5th primary.

AL AG Steve Marshall leading the fight to protect your gun rights

(Marshall Campaign)

Steve Marshall is a champion for Second Amendment rights. In his first year in office, he has led the fight both in Alabama and beyond to ensure that the individual right to bear arms is protected.

One of his first official acts as Attorney General was to lead twenty-five states in standing up for the right of individuals to carry firearms outside of the home. In a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Alabama and 25 other states, Marshall questioned the constitutionality of a San Diego County gun restriction which banned citizens from possessing firearms outside of the home for self-defense. Believing the law to be a flagrant violation of Californians’ Second Amendment rights, Marshall said at the time of filing:

237

“The Constitution does not limit [the right to bear arms] to the interior of one’s own home, yet that is effectively what the sheriff of San Diego County has dictated to local residents. As a result, most of the citizens of San Diego County today cannot open carry or concealed carry outside their property, even for self-defense. This unconstitutional limitation on the Second Amendment must be challenged and I am proud to lead a 26-state court filing to the U.S. Supreme Court opposing this unlawful gun ban.”

Marshall asked the Supreme Court to reverse the ultra-liberal Ninth Circuit and strike down the California law. Marshall’s brief was joined by Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Immediately upon taking office, Steve Marshall took the lead in a case with national implications for Second Amendment rights. And this is just one example of how he’s methodically pushing back against those who want to whittle away at the right to bear arms. Throughout his time in office, Marshall has continually demonstrated his commitment to protecting our constitutional rights at the state and federal levels and gives us a clear picture of the kinds of issues he will focus on if elected in the June 5th primary.

We found this video of Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall …

(YHN)

When Steve Marshall was appointed Alabama Attorney General in early 2017, Yellowhammer News began researching our state’s new top cop and stumbled upon a video of him speaking off the cuff at his church in Albertville.

“Every now and then, we catch a glimpse of politicians and public servants in candid moments behind a camera or a hot mic,” wrote former Yellowhammer News Editor Larry Huff. “These rare instances often give our readers more insight into public figures than their planned appearances and prepared remarks.”

In the video, Marshall told his Lifepoint Church family that the attorney general appointment made him feel like the luckiest man in Alabama because he had planned to run a long-shot campaign all along for his “dream job”.

“You know, rural DA from Marshall County with no money thinks he can become AG? Well, see what God does?” Marshall said the week he received the appointment. “My prayer throughout this was that I be obedient to God’s will. If I stayed as Marshall County DA until I retired, I would have been a blessed man, but my prayer was one that said, ‘God, if this is where you want me, if this is the place that I need to be able to live through your glory, then this is what I want.’”

“What has struck me is what an amazing platform I have to be somebody that’s a sinner saved by grace but can demonstrate to others that we do the right thing for the right reason,” Marshall said.
