On May 11, 2015 the Alabama state legislature approved a bill (S-118, now Act No. 2015-163) that restricts the capacity of non-citizens to become accountants. Prior to enactment of this bill, state law provided that a person could be granted a certificate to serve as a certified public accountant (CPA) provided that the person was (1) a citizen of the United States or (2) a person who is legally present in the United States with appropriate documentation from the federal government, or (3) has duly declared his or her intent to become a citizen. The new law repealed the third of these options. By leaving in place the second, the law still made it possible for non-citizens to become CPAs, but only if they could provide legal documentation from the federal government.
