Representatives Christopher England (D-70) and Kyle South (R-16) announced the creation of the bipartisan Alabama State Future Caucus, a brand-new caucus comprised of state legislators under age 40. The announcement is part of a nation-wide movement in state houses across the country where millennial legislators are seeking to find common ground in an era of hyper partisanship.
The caucus will focus on issues that these millennials care about, including student debt and clean energy. Alabama’s Future Caucus will be part of the Millennial Action Project’s national effort to support young elected officials as they work to break through partisan gridlock and reestablish political cooperation.
