The state representative who sponsored the Alabama Accountability Act has decided not to run again for the Legislature. Republican Rep. Chad Fincher of Semmes announced Wednesday that he will not seek a third term this year.     

Fincher told al.com that he will focus on his new role as executive director of the Mobile Area Association of Realtors, which he began in November.     

Last year, Fincher sponsored the Alabama Accountability Act, which gave tax credits to parents who move their children from failing public schools to private schools. He also ran for the 1st Congressional District last year and finished third in the Republican primary.     

He is the second legislator from Mobile County to announce that he won't seek re-election.

Republican Jamie Ison of Mobile made the announcement earlier.
