By WVUA 23 News Reporter Elise Anzaldua

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey visited Tuscaloosa Tuesday, meeting with the Tuscaloosa Rotary Club during their regular weekly meeting.

Ivey said Tuscaloosa is making a strong economic rebound in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and said she’s proud of how many Alabamians are back at work. Alabama’s unemployment rate as of September is 3.1%, compared with the nationwide average of 4.8%.

Ivey was at the Rotary Club a day after Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall announced the state is filing a lawsuit against the federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate. So far, 19 states have filed lawsuits.

“I’m going to pursue this stronger avenue of insisting this issue be decided in our courts,” Ivey said.
