Editorial: "You're Home in Alabama"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - If you are serving our country and stationed in Alabama, we want you to feel at home. One of the ways Alabama lawmakers are making service members feel this way is by allowing for in-state tuition fees for active service members, their spouses, and dependents located in Alabama under orders.

HB 424 was drafted and supported by the Military Stability Commission, a commission whose purpose is to strengthen Alabama's military installations and advocate for our military men and women.

In-state tuition fees for these men and women is just one way Alabama can do its part to reward and acknowledge the sacrifices these brave soldiers and their families make daily as they serve our country and maintain our freedoms.

From one transplanted Alabamian to another, welcome home. We're glad you're here.
