Who Really Wants This Bill?

Once again, the bill to lower Alabama’s age of majority from 19 to 18 is in the news. There’s a short article about it in today’s Birmingham News. The article is all about concerns people have raised about the proposal (mainly relating to chlid support), but nobody’s answering my question, who is it who thinks this is a good idea, and why?

Are we doing this so used car dealers can prey on younger kids? So we can legally get younger kids addicted to tobacco? What good would this do to whom?

Maybe there’s a great reason for lowering Alabama’s age of majority. I just haven’t heard it yet.
