Alan Baker has been busy - and his first session as a state legislator has not yet begun.
Baker began his work as the District 66 state representative on Nov. 8, hours after his election to the post.
Baker said his job has been hectic since the election and will be building speed soon as the organizational session of the Alabama Legislature convenes on Jan. 9.
Senate leader Lowell Barron has announced he is stepping down, leaving senators with an interesting power struggle.
In the House, Baker said he has already met with other officials in preparation for the upcoming session for organization.
With 104 members being seated in the House for this term, there are many decisions to be made during the organizational period.
Baker will continue his work in the House as the general session begins in March.
