Republicans elect House majority leader

Republicans in the Alabama House of Representatives elected state Rep. Micky Hammon of Decatur as House Majority Leader on Wednesday.
In his position, Hammon will help to control the flow of legislation onto the House floor.
"I am touched and honored by the responsibility my colleagues have given me, and I look forward to serving the citizens of Alabama in this role," Hammon said. "Republicans are committed to bringing widespread reforms and changes to the way Montgomery does business, and serving as majority leader will allow me to be at the center of those efforts."
He has been an outspoken proponent of illegal immigration reform.
Other candidates for the position were Rep. Mike Ball of Madison and Rep. Greg Canfield of Vestavia Hills.
Hammon, an electrical contractor who was elected to the House in 2002, will also serve as chairman of the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee, and as vice chair of the House Economic Development and Tourism Committee.
