Chambliss Named Majority Floor Leader for State Senate Republicans

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Alabama Senate Majority Leader Greg Reed (R-Jasper) announced Thursday that Sen. Clyde Chambliss (R-Prattville) has been named Majority Floor Leader for the State Senate Republican Caucus.

Reed called Chambliss a proven leader who has a deep grasp of the Senate’s rules and procedures and has the respect of his Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle.

“Sen. Chambliss has done an outstanding job as co-chairman of the Joint Legislative Task Force for Budget Reform,” Reed said. “As we move forward in this new legislative term, he will help the Republican Caucus and the entire Senate operate efficiently as we continue to reform state government, strengthen education, and improve Alabama’s infrastructure.”

Chambliss represents District 30 in the Alabama Senate, which is comprised of all or parts of Autauga, Elmore, Chilton, Coosa, and Tallapoosa counties. He was first elected to the State Senate in 2014, and re-elected without opposition in 2018.

“The State Senate is a unique institution, where 35 people have the privilege of representing the views and interests of nearly five million Alabamians from 67 counties,” said Chambliss. “Those views and interests must be heard, organized, and delivered to Senate leadership in a timely manner. It is an honor to be named Majority Floor Leader and I look forward to serving my colleagues in this new role.”

The regular session of the Alabama Legislature begins Tuesday, March 5.
