STATE OF ALABAMA
PROCLAMATION
BY THE GOVERNOR
WHEREAS, the Alabama Legislature at its Regular Sessions of 2013-2014
ordered an election to be held on certain proposed amendments to the

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 Alabama:
SB4
ENROLLED, An Act,
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.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA:
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:
PROPOSED AMENDMENT
(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 consistent with constitutional
principles. However, the language of any such contract or other waiver shall be
strictly construed in favor of preserving the constitutional rights of the natural
person in this state. Further, no Alabama court shall be required by any contract or
other obligation entered into by a person or entity to apply or enforce any foreign
law.
(h) Except as limited by subsection (g), without prejudice to any legal right, this
amendment shall not apply to a corporation, partnership, limited liability company,
business association, or other legal entity that contracts to subject itself to foreign
law in a jurisdiction other than this state or the United States.
(i) Where the public acts, records, or judicial proceedings of another state violate
the public policy of the State of Alabama, the State of Alabama shall not give full
faith and credit thereto.
Section 2. An election upon the proposed amendment shall be held in
accordance with Sections 284 and 285 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901,
now appearing as Sections 284 and 285 of the Official Recompilation of the
Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, and the election laws of this state.
Section 3. The appropriate election official shall assign a ballot number for the
proposed constitutional amendment on the election ballot and shall set forth the
following description of the substance or subject matter of the proposed
constitutional amendment:
"Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to prohibit the
State of Alabama from giving full faith and credit to public acts, records, or judicial
proceedings of another state that violate the public policy of the State of Alabama
and to prohibit the application of foreign law in violation of rights guaranteed
natural citizens by the United States and Alabama Constitutions, and the statutes,
laws, and public policy thereof, but without application to business entities.
