The 2015 legislative session is underway. Governor Haslam has made his State of the State address and presented his budget proposal for the 2016 fiscal year. We are now past the bill filing deadline, and legislation will be moving through the committees and on to the floor of the Senate.
I invite to you to call or write with your comments or questions on pending bills. I like hearing from my constituents and consider your thoughts and views when studying and voting on legislation. You can follow legislation on the General Assembly’s web site: www.capitol.tn.gov. It is user-friendly and has received several awards and recognitions.
If you have not done so already, please consider signing up to receive my weekly Capitol Update, which is emailed at the end of each week during the legislative session. We work hard on making the Capitol Update a thorough summary of the significant legislation considered during the week by the Senate.
In closing, I’d like to thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your representative in the State Senate. Again, please feel free to call (615/741-0918) or write with questions, comments or concerns.
