House District 37

Rep Charlie Baum is new in 2019. He serves as a member of House Education, House Curriculum, Testing, & Innovation Subcommittee, and Finance, Ways, & Means Committee. He co-sponsored only 3 bills supported by TLRC based on our liberty values. Rep. Baum shows potential for leadership but, as a freshman, perhaps was reluctant to sponsor any bills perceived as controversial. He could have, however, co-sponsored a number of bills to improve his leadership grade. We look forward to working with Rep. Baum to forge a good reciprocal relationship going forward and expect great things from him.
