We’re joined by Rep. Mike Jones of Andalusia, the new chair of the powerful House Rules Committee. He will discuss his role in vetting bills and deciding which ones to send to the House floor for debate. We’re also be joined by Rep. Ken Johnson of Moulton and Courtney Sirmon with the Alabama Birth Coalition. They will talk about the state later this month beginning the process of putting together a board to license midwives in Alabama. They hope that certified professional midwives can begin practicing in the state by next year. And we will discuss all of the week’s top state government news in our "Week in Review" segment.
