21st Century Manufacturing Zone Act: 17,000 new jobs
Battle has served as Huntsville's mayor for eight years. Under his leadership, more than 17,000 new jobs have been created for the area, including the addition of Remington Arms Company and Polaris.
He has taken a fiscally conservative, results-driven approach to creating new jobs and better opportunities for Alabamians.
In 2016, Battle worked with leaders across the state to support the Major 21st Century Manufacturing Zone Act.
Approved unanimously by the Alabama State Legislature and overwhelmingly by state voters, the act gave
more authority to local leaders in communities pursuing major economic development and job creating projects.
