“The 2022 legislative session was critical and impactful for the continued economic growth across Alabama,” said Sen. Scofield. “Through the efforts and commitment of my colleagues in the Senate, we saw the successful passage of numerous pieces of legislation benefitting citizens across our state. As we kick off the 2023 legislative session, I look forward to continuing to serve as the Alabama Senate Majority Leader. I am grateful for the confidence from my colleagues and promise to continue to deliver strong conservative policies for the people of Alabama. I assure you that we will have even more wins for the great state of Alabama.”
