House District 17

Rep. Andrew Farmer: (R) Chair, Criminal Justice Subcommittee, Member: State Committee, Corrections Subcommittee, Judiciary Committee. Chairman Farmer co-sponsored 5 bills that TLRC chose to score. One of those we opposed: legalization of sale and consumption of alcohol on college campus sporting events. Colleges are established for higher education of people largely in the 18-21 age group, for whom most are not legally allowed to either purchase or consume alcohol. One would think it would be discouraged. To earn a higher leadership grade, Chairman Farmer could co-sponsor more of the TLRC’s bills with which he agrees . We look forward to working with him in 2020 and getting better acquainted. In 2018: Sponsored one bill favored by TLRC: HB1111 requiring the natural and ordinary meaning applied to words in the TN code. It was passed in 2017. Co-sponsored two (2) bills favored by TLRC. Voted for the Gas Tax.
