House District 38

Rep. Kelly Keisling: (R) Chair: House State Committee, Member: Departments & Agencies Subcommittee, Public Service & Employees Subcommittee, Corrections Subcommittee, Calendar & Rules Committee, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. Chairman Keisling co-sponsored 5 of TLRC's recommended bills. More would have earned him a higher grade. He has earned an impressive 98% vote score. We would like to have seen Chairman Keisling bring back his 2018 bill to prohibit conflict-of- interest on local government commissions and councils. We hope he will try again in 2020 and we will try to help get it passed. In 2018: Sponsored one (1) bill favored by TLRC: HB2258 prohibiting conflict-of-interest positions on local government commissions and councils. This is a big priority for TLRC but it did not pass. Co-sponsored nine (9) bills favored by TLRC. Voted for the Gas Tax.
