Stadthagen named ’50 under 50′ by national legislative group

WASHINGTON — The American Legislative Exchange Council recognized Alabama House Majority Leader Scott Stadthagen as one of its “50 Under 50” premier conservative legislators at its 50th anniversary celebration.

Stadthagen (R-Hartselle) was honored for his commitment to empowering parents, providing tax relief, and legislation he drove to protect critical infrastructure from foreign adversaries, the organization said.

“Since taking office, I have worked hard to represent and reflect the strong conservative beliefs and core moral values that the constituents in my district and the majority of Alabamians hold close,” Stadthagen said. 

“While those efforts and the privilege of holding office are already deeply fulfilling, having a respected group like ALEC include me among the nation’s top conservative lawmakers makes the honor of public service even more special.”

ALEC Chief Executive Officer Lisa B. Nelson praised Stadthagen for his commitment to promoting conservative policies at the state level, which earned him the group’s recognition as one of the top young lawmakers in the nation.

“Leader Stadthagen has been a steadfast defender of ALEC’s founding principles of limited government, free markets, and federalism,” Nelson said. “Scott is an invaluable member of the 50-under-50 class, and the men and women of Alabama’s Ninth House District are lucky to have him as their state representative.”

Elected to the Alabama House in 2018, Stadthagen was selected as House Majority Leader by his Republican colleagues in 2022. He holds seats on the body’s Rules, State Government, and Fiscal Responsibility committees.

Founded in 1973, ALEC and its state affiliates share model legislation that advance conservative policies and fundamental constitutional tenets in legislative bodies across the nation. It is considered among the preeminent conservative policy think tanks currently operating in the U.S.
