Legal notices


WHEREAS, the Alabama Legislature at its Regular Sessions of 2013-2014 ordered an election to be held
on certain proposed amendments to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, set out herein as Act Nos. 2013-
269 (SB4); 2013-266 (SB260); 2013-267 (HB8); 2014-185 (SB7); and 2014-286 (HB322); and in
accordance with the provisions of Sections 284, 285, and 287 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as
amended, and the election laws of this state; and

WHEREAS, notice of this election, together with these proposed amendments, is required by law and by
the provisions of the proposed amendments, to be given by Proclamation of the Governor, which
Proclamation shall be published once a week for four successive weeks immediately preceding the day
appointed for the election in a newspaper qualified to run legal notices in each county of the state.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Robert Bentley, as Governor of the State of Alabama, do hereby give notice,
direct and proclaim that on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, an election will be held in the State of Alabama
as provided by law upon the following proposed amendments to the Constitution of 1901 of the State of



Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to prohibit the application of foreign law
in violation of rights guaranteed natural citizens by the United States and Alabama Constitutions, and the
laws and public policy of the state, without application to business entities.


Section 1. The following amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, is proposed and
shall become valid as a part thereof when approved by a majority of the qualified electors voting thereon
and in accordance with Sections 284, 285, and 287 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended:


(a) This amendment shall be known and may be cited as the American and Alabama Laws for Alabama
Courts Amendment.

(b) The law of Alabama provides:

(1) The State of Alabama has developed its unique public policy of laws based on the United States
Constitution, as protected by Amendment 10 to the United States Constitution.

(2) Upon becoming a state in 1819, Alabama adopted its first constitutional and statutory enactments, upon
which it has built the rights, privileges, obligations, and requirements of its government and citizens.

(3) Both the provisions of the Alabama Constitution and the statutes and regulations of the State of
Alabama, with interpreting opinions by its courts of competent jurisdiction, have developed the state's
public policy.

(4) The public policy of the State of Alabama protects the unique rights of its citizens beginning with
Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, guaranteeing the equality and rights of men.
Except as permitted by due process of law and the right of the people to vote for self-determination, the
rights, privileges, and immunities of the citizens of the State of Alabama are inviolate.

(5) Different from the law of the State of Alabama is foreign law, which is any law, rule, or legal code, or
system established, used, or applied in a jurisdiction outside of the states or territories of the United States,
or which exist as a separate body of law, legal code, or system adopted or used anywhere by any people,
group, or culture different from the Constitution and laws of the United States or the State of Alabama.

(6) Alabama has a favorable business climate and has attracted many international businesses. While
Alabama business persons and companies may decide to use foreign law in foreign courts, the public
policy of Alabama is to prohibit anyone from requiring Alabama courts to apply and enforce foreign laws.

(7) The public policy of this state is to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the
application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the Alabama Constitution
or of the United States Constitution, including, but not limited to, due process, freedom of religion, speech,
assembly, or press, or any right of privacy or marriage.

(8) Article IV, Section 1, of the United States Constitution provides that full faith and credit shall be given
by each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of other states. Provided, however, when
any such public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of another state violate the public policy of the
State of Alabama, the State of Alabama is not and shall not be required to give full faith and credit thereto.

(c) A court, arbitrator, administrative agency, or other adjudicative, arbitrative, or enforcement authority
shall not apply or enforce a foreign law if doing so would violate any state law or a right guaranteed by the
Constitution of this state or of the United States.

(d) If any contractual provision or agreement provides for the choice of a foreign law to govern its
interpretation or the resolution of any dispute between the parties, and if the enforcement or interpretation
of the contractual provision or agreement would result in a violation of a right guaranteed by the
Constitution of this state or of the United States, the agreement or contractual provision shall be modified
or amended to the extent necessary to preserve the constitutional rights of the parties.

(e) If any contractual provision or agreement provides for the choice of venue or forum outside of the
states or territories of the United States, and if the enforcement or interpretation of the contract or
agreement applying that choice of venue or forum provision would result in a violation of any right
guaranteed by the Constitution of this state or of the United States, that contractual provision or agreement
shall be interpreted or construed to preserve the constitutional rights of the person against whom
enforcement is sought. If a natural person subject to personal jurisdiction in this state seeks to maintain
litigation, arbitration, an administrative proceeding, or a similarly binding proceeding in this state, and if a
court of this state finds that granting a claim of forum non conveniens or a related claim violates or would
likely lead to the violation of the constitutional rights of the nonclaimant in the foreign forum with respect
to the matter in dispute, the claim shall be denied.

(f) Any contractual provision or agreement incapable of being modified or amended in order to preserve
the constitutional rights of the parties pursuant to the provisions of this amendment shall be null and void.

(g) Nothing in this amendment shall be interpreted to limit the right of a natural person or entity of this
state to voluntarily restrict or limit his, her, or its own constitutional rights by contract or specific waiver
