There were some significant conservative accomplishments during the 2023 legislative session, according to Senate Majority Leader Clay Scofield (R-Guntersville).

Now in his third year as majority leader, Scofield proclaimed this year's efforts protected wealth and fought a "woke liberal influence."

"This legislative session, we passed some of the strongest conservative bills in the nation," he said. "I'm proud of my colleagues in the Senate for working hard this session to serve their constituents. When thinking of our most impactful new laws, it is important to take note of the bills that cut taxes and helped all Alabamians by lowering the burden on hard-working folks. The Senate passed several pieces of legislation to keep money in the pockets of our taxpayers and small businesses. We passed one of the strongest anti-ESG bills in the nation to protect funds in Alabama and fight against a woke liberal influence across America."

Also among Senate Republicans' accomplishments were strides made combatting fentanyl and supporting farmers, according to the Marshall County lawmaker.

"Top of mind for the Alabama Senate Republicans each session is protecting our families and protecting children," Scofield continued. "This session, we've buckled down on the fentanyl crisis to crack down on drug dealers and establish mandatory minimum sentences for convicted fentanyl dealers. We also worked to support farmers and agriculture across Alabama. Agriculture is one of our Alabama's top-producing industries, accounting for more than 20% of jobs in the state. We've fought to cut red tape for farmers and support economic development in rural areas."

"Your Alabama Republican Senate Caucus is proud of our work this session as we continue to protect our conservative values and support the hard-working people of the state of Alabama," he added.
