Speaker of the House, Mac McCuthcheon (R - Monrovia) on Thursday announced that he has appointed State Representative David Standridge (R - Hayden) to a seat on the powerful House Rules Committee.  The Committee is tasked with setting the body’s agenda for each work day and determining which bills will be debated upon the chamber floor.

He also serves on the House Boards Agencies and Commission and Local Legislation Committees.

“Throughout Rep. Standridge’s tenure in the House he has proven to be a respected leader,” McCuthcheon said.  “The members of the Rules Committee are given great responsibility because they determine which bills will or will not come up for a vote, but I know that David will fulfill this assignment with wisdom, fairness, and integrity.”

Standridge, who also chairs the bi-partisan Alabama Rural Caucus, said he looks forward to playing a role in determining the body’s daily working agenda.

“We have our work cut out for us this year and I will do my part to ensure the important issues facing our state are brought to the House for debate,” Standridge said.  It is an honor and a privilege to be selected to serve my constituents in this capacity and I appreciate the confidence the Speaker has placed in me.  I will work hard to ensure the needs of Blount and Marshall Counties are served.”

Representative David Standridge was first elected to represent House District 34 in a 2012 special election.  He is a former law enforcement officer and served as Blount County Probate Judge and Chairman of the Blount County Commission.

Standridge will officially begin his Rules Committee responsibilities when the Legislature convenes in Montgomery for the 2017 regular session on Tuesday, February 7th.
