Senate President Pro Tem, Majority Leader Congratulate Scofield on Appointment to Influential Rules Committee

MONTGOMERY – Alabama’s two top-ranking Senators on Friday congratulated Senator Clay Scofield (R-Red Hill) on his recent appointment to the Senate’s influential Rules Committee, which sets the daily agenda for the Senate and determines what legislation will go before the full chamber.

Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh (R-Anniston) and Senate Majority Leader Jabo Waggoner (R-Vestavia) said their colleague will be a valuable addition to the committee, noting Scofield’s commitment to serving his constituents and implementing policies that will benefit the state of Alabama.

“In just two short years in the Legislature, Senator Scofield has emerged as a leader who’s committed to working hard, tackling tough issues and always striving to best represent the people of his district,” Marsh said. “He’s well respected by his colleagues and I’m confident that he’ll prove to be a valuable addition to the Rules Committee.”

“Senator Scofield’s appointment to the Rules Committee is a not only a major win for his district, it’s a win for all Alabamians who value a commitment to doing what’s right and honesty in public service” said Waggoner, who also serves as the committee’s chairman. “He’s been a champion for conservative, responsible solutions that help make Alabama a better place to call home and I want to congratulate him on this new position.”

Scofield, who also serves as Chairman of the Senate’s Tourism and Marketing Committee and Vice Chairman of the Small Business Committee, said he appreciates the confidence his colleagues have placed in him by tapping him for this post.

“I consider it a tremendous honor to serve on the Rules Committee and I’ll continue working everyday to best represent the people of Senate District 9 and citizens of Alabama,” Scofield said. “Senator Marsh and Senator Waggoner have set a strong example for reigning in out-of-control government spending and boosting the private-sector economy, and I’m proud to serve on this important committee as we continue working to move Alabama forward.”
