Alabama State enacted a new bill concerning officials of an emergency telephone district. The new bill, which is referred to as HB 188, requires the members of staff or officials of an emergency telephone district that manage or disburse its funds to acquire a surety bond in a quantity that is no less than the sum funds that the district attained in the previous fiscal year. HB 188 is relevant to county officers, county commissioners, clerk and recorders, sheriffs, coroners, treasurers, assessors, and surveyors.
