About the Alabama Senate Republican Caucus

Conservative. Focused. Committed.

Over the past ten years, Senate Republicans have proposed and implemented bold reforms to address many issues important to Alabamians. Now in their third quadrennium of leadership, Senate Republicans are continuing to protect taxpayers, uphold the sanctity of life, empower students and teachers, and create a jobs-friendly business climate. These conservative ideas will pave a path for the future to make Alabama a better place to live, work, and raise a family.


The President Pro Tempore (Pro Tem) leads the Senate and is filled through election by the full Senate membership. Senator Greg Reed (R-Jasper) is in his first term as Pro Tem of the Alabama State Senate.

Majority Leader is the other elected position, voted on by the majority (Republicans). In 2020, Senator Clay Scofield (R-Guntersville) was elected by his peers to serve in this role, which is tasked with assisting the Pro Tem in leadership and serving the members.

Senate Rules Chairman Jabo Waggoner (R-Vestavia Hills) brings vast experience to the Senate leadership team. He previously served as the Majority Leader and Chairman of the Confirmations Committee.

Senate Finance & Taxation General Fund Chairman Greg Albritton (R-Atmore) is in his second term in the Senate, and has served four years in the House of Representatives. The General Fund is the budget for all non-education state spending.

Senate Finance & Taxation Education Chairman Arthur Orr (R-Decatur), who is in his fourth term, spearheads the budgeting process for Alabama’s K-12 schools, community colleges, and universities.
