Pebblin Warren of Macon County, passed out of the Senate with a vote of 22-4. This legislation would provide the most basic level of safety for children attending religious af- filiated daycares throughout the state including requiring criminal background checks on the peo- ple whose care children are being placed into and yearly inspections of facilities. "Today is a great day for the children of Ala- bama," said Rep. Pebblin Warren. "This legisla- tion will go a long way to ensuring a safer environment for children across the state who at- tends these facilities. I greatly appreciate all the support from my colleagues and look forward to the Governor signing this important legislation."
