Section 11-50-241

Construction of division; jurisdiction, etc., of State Board of Health and state Public Service Commission.

(a) Neither this division nor anything contained in this division shall be construed as a restriction or limitation upon any power, right, or remedy which any corporation now in existence or hereafter formed may have in the absence thereof, but shall be construed as cumulative and independent of any such power, right or remedy. No proceedings, notice, or approval shall be required for the incorporation of such corporation, the acquisition of any property, or the making of any loans or issuance of instruments in evidence thereof or as security therefor, except as prescribed in this division, any other law to the contrary notwithstanding; provided, however, that nothing in this division shall be construed to suspend the jurisdiction of the State Board of Health as may be otherwise provided by law.

(b) Any corporation organized under the provisions of this division shall be exempt from all jurisdiction of and regulation by the Alabama Public Service Commission.
