November 28, 1901: Alabama Constitution Goes Into Effect
On November 21, 1901, Alabama ratified a new state constitution. It went into effect on November 28 and remains in effect until this day. The 1901 constitution is the 6th in Alabama’s history — and by far the largest (44x the size of the US Constitution).
Most of Alabama’s gambling statutes came about through the 1901 Constitution. Only a few changes have occurred since.
