MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Representative Will Ainsworth continues his research to complete a bill allowing for a recall election but he also feels other options are on the table.

If Will Ainsworth has his way a recall election bill will become a reality in Alabama but that won't happen overnight.

Ainsworth feels other options are still possible for embattled Governor Robert Bentley.

He feels the first is for the governor to resign and the second is articles of impeachment proposed by Representative Ed Henry.

Ainsworth says a recall election bill would give the citizens an option if a politician doesn't fulfill their obligations.

But Ainsworth says this is an issue every Alabamian needs to weigh in on.

“Let your senator or representative know where you stand because this is important. It's about the future of our state and I think right now we have to make sure we have a leader that is not distracted and focus on leading our state because we have an important two and a half years left in this term,” says Ainsworth.

Ainsworth says he plans to introduce his bill when the legislature reconvenes on Tuesday.
