  MONTGOMERY - State Senator Paul Bussman announced Tuesday he is minimizing his duties with the Senate GOP Caucus.

  "I am a proud member of the Republican party and will remain a proud member of the GOP," Bussman said. "However, I will no longer affiliate with the senate majority caucus."

  This decision by Bussman comes after strong discussion on Senate Bill # 11. Bussman reports rules for the senate on the Republican and Democratic side, did not operate fairly on the process of this proposed bill.

  Bussman said he will no longer accept the actions of the Republican Caucus leadership which are misguided, unequally applied, punitive and diverse.
