Taylor earned his B.A. from the University of Alabama in 1998. He went on to receive his J.D. from the University of Texas Law School in 2001. He formerly served as policy director and legal counsel for Governor Bob Riley from 2006 to 2010. Taylor has served in the Alabama National Guard and as JAG prosecutor. He has also served as a Captain in the United States Army.
Taylor served on these committees in the 2011-2012 legislative session:

- Constitution, Campaign Finance, Ethics and Elections Committee Chair

- Fiscal Responsibility and Accountability Committee
- Governmental Affairs Committee
- Judiciary Committee

Taylor will not be seeking re-election to the Alabama State Senate in 2014. According to media reports, Taylor sighted the normal "mumbo jumbo" of balancing family and work as cause for leaving the senate after only serving one term. Sources also suggest that Taylor's planned exit may be due to poor performance in polling predictions for the 2014 race.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
Note: As of April 2015, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to email@example.com.
Taylor and his wife, Jessica, have one child.
