Jim Preuitt of Talladega said Wednesday he is optimistic about working with Senate Republicans and a handful of Democrats to find an alternative to Sen. Lowell Barron's leadership when the Legislature returns to work next year.
The new Senate will meet in January to elect its president pro tem and decide how to appoint committees and pick committee chairmen for the next four years.
Preuitt said he's hoping to bring more unity to the Senate. Senator Preuitt said he thinks the Senate ought to be working together in a bipartisan effort, which he said would probably make things smoother. Senator Lowell Barron's group started having some defectors during the last four-year term, and the group grew last week when six Democratic senators including Preuitt, announced they were open to forming a coalition with the 12 Republican senators. Senator Preuitt said the situation has been developing over the past year. The Senator said that Barron has problems with a lot of different senators. Preuitt said there has been "some discussion" of nominating him for the Senate's top position, but there remains a long time until leadership elections in January, and he said his focus is on "reorganizing" the Senate for smoother operations.

We've been a do-nothing body for four weeks," said Senate Rules Committee Chairman Jim Preuitt, D-Talladega.
The Senate's Republican leader, Jabo Waggoner of Vestavia Hills, resigned from the Senate Rules Committee on Thursday because he said he had no input.The 16 senators represent 2 million Alabamians and they deserve input when bills are discussed in committee, he said.
Sen. Gerald Dial, D-Lineville, and a member of the minority, said the situation now is the reverse of 1999, when Barron and many of the senators on his side kept the Senate from doing anything for 10 meeting days because they felt they had been treated unfairly by then-Lt.Gov Steve Windom.
The Senate slowdown is getting on the nerves of House leaders.
