Governor Ivey Plans for Improvement in First Full Term
Governor Kay Ivey began her first full term and has plans that consist of improving the states’ infrastructure to compete in a 21st century global economy. Governor Ivey also shared plans for better paying jobs, better education for children and improvements to the states’ prison system during her inaugural address.
Ivey became governor 21 months ago when former Governor Robert Bentley resigned amid an impeachment probe. She then went on to secure her own term by defeating Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox back in November. Ivey is the state's second female governor and the first Republican woman elected into this position.
