Previously he served in the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mississippi_State_Senate">Mississippi State Senate, representing the 6th district, from 1995 to 2011. He is a member of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Party_(United_States)">Republican Party.

Alan believes that the strength of America lies in its people, neighborhoods, churches and communities, not the federal government.  He is known for his conservative, pro-life, pro-family, fiscally responsible values and is a defender of the Second Amendment. He currently serves on the House Appropriations Committee and the Agriculture, Energy and Water and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Subcommittees.

Before joining the 112th Congress, Alan represented Lee and Pontotoc counties in the Mississippi State Senate. As chairman of the Appropriations Committee, he developed a reputation as a strong fiscal conservative.  Every year he was chairman the budget was balanced without raising taxes.  Prior to that role, Alan chaired the Public Health Committee where he fought against waste in Medicaid and was a leader on several national committees addressing public health issues.  He also stood shoulder to shoulder with his fellow conservatives during the tort reform battles in 2003 and helped Governor Haley Barbour pass comprehensive reform in 2004.

Known as a champion of pro life causes, Alan has been nationally recognized for his success in helping make Mississippi the safest place for unborn children.  Alan also knows that faith in God is a cornerstone of American life.  In 2001, he authored legislation to place our national motto, “In God We Trust,” on the wall of every school classroom in Mississippi at zero cost to the taxpayers.

In Congress, Alan has continued his work as a fiscal conservative by voting for spending cuts, the Balanced Budget Amendment, and repeal of Obamacare.

Alan is a graduate of Mississippi State University.  Prior to Congress, he was Vice President of Allied Funeral Associates, a life insurance company and a member of the Community Development Foundation’s board of directors.

Alan is a deacon and Sunday School teacher at Calvary Baptist.  He and his wife Tori have three children, Reed who is married to Kemily, Emily who is married to Trey, and Nathan who is married to Colleen.  Alan and Tori also have two grandchildren, Thomas Kemp Nunnelee and Harper Grace Nunnelee.
