Flag, Family, and Country.
Over the past four years, House Republicans proposed and implemented bold reforms to address multiple issues important to Alabamians. Now in the last quadrennium the Alabama House Republican Caucus has released its 2018 Legislative Agenda, “Flag, Family, and Country”.
“Rather than being considered as separate, stand-alone documents, the legislative agendas offered by the Alabama House Republican Caucus during the 2014 – 2018 quadrennium should be viewed as four pieces of the same puzzle – each fitting with the other and providing a full and vivid picture when completed,” House Majority Leader Nathaniel Ledbetter (R – Rainsville) said.“In previous years, we have focused upon protecting unborn life, attracting new jobs, improving public education, and fighting federal government intrusion. In 2018, our ‘Flag, Family, and Country’ agenda will focus upon other areas that are important to all conservative and patriotic Alabamians.”
The Speaker of the House role leads the House of Representatives. Representative Mac McCutcheon (R- Monrovia) is in his second term as Speaker of the House of the Alabama House of Representatives.
Majority Leader is the other elected position voted on by the majority (Republicans). Representative Nathaniel Ledbetter (R- Rainsville) was selected by his peers to serve in this role, which is tasked with leading the 70 Republican Caucus members.
Majority Leader Nathaniel Ledbetter serves as the head of the Alabama House Republican Caucus at the direction of the Speaker of the House, Mac McCutcheon. Working together, the 70 members debate, discuss, develop, and become educated on public policy matters important to the legislative process, including legislation pending before the Alabama House of Representatives.
