House District 21

Rep. Lowell Russell (R) is new in 2019. He serves as Vice-Chair: House Calendar & Rules Committee, Member: Consumer and Human Resources Committee, Consumer Subcommittee, Transportation Committee, Safety & Funding Subcommittee. As a freshman, Vice-chairman Russell would not be expected to sponsor bold legislation, but perhaps we can look forward to that next year with an improvement to his leadership grade. He co-sponsored 5 of our recommended bills. His voting record indicates that he could have co-sponsored more and earned a higher grade. He earned a vote score of 91% demonstrating his dedication to sound freedom-preserving principles. We expect to work closely with him next year to achieve great things for Tennessee.
