Representative Terri Lynn Weaver: (R), serving district 40 since 2009, has been a mighty warrior for traditional conservative values.  This year she is the highest scoring member of the entire Tennessee General Assembly House of Representatives, scoring at remarkable 98% in a very tough year.

Rep. Weaver earned an A for leadership, accruing an impressive 80 merits in sponsorships, co-sponsorships and other meritorious actions.

Weaver showed remarkable courage, defying lobbyists and leadership by voting NO on three major corporate welfare bills:

  • HB2609/SB2890  Cincinnati Reds 80% tax-break for Chattanooga farm team
  • HB2886/SB2901  Provides $500M for Titans to build new stadium

  • HB8002/SB8002  Provides $678,218,300 of taxpayer money for Ford to build an electric vehicle plant in W. TN

Corporate welfare in all forms should be opposed. Our state government should not be giving economic advantages to any public or private for-profit entities. Let the free market pick the winners and losers. Kudos to Ms. Weaver for standing up for her constituents over billion dollar corporations.

Rep. Weaver supported every constitutionally conservative bill selected by this organization, with only one exception.

Principles supported: education reform, medical freedom, second amendment rights, fiscal responsibility, governmental transparency, election integrity, and constitutional fidelity.

The one exception was a rather lengthy and ambiguously debated election/campaign bill which Rep. Weaver supported.

HB1201/SB1005 – Changes in campaign finance giving some advantage to incumbents

TLRC would like to have seen that bill cleared up and simplified. We can understand confusion surrounding this legislation. Rep. Weaver is a true credit to her constituents and to all Tennesseans, consistently voting for traditional conservative values. We look forward to working with her in the 113th session.
