Rep. Clark Boyd serves as Chair, Business and Utilities Subcommittee, Member, Banking and Consumer Affairs Subcommittee, Commerce Committee, Health Committee, Health Subcommittee, Transportation Committee, Transportation Subcommittee, and the Joint Fiscal Review Committee.

Chairman Boyd did an admirable job chairing the Business and Utilities committee. His 94% vote score put him right in the middle of the house members, with forty-seven members scoring higher. Where he lost points was not sponsoring forward-leaning conservative bills and supporting some that were anti-constitutional, such as HJR10, which would have put Tennessee on the record as believers of systemic racism, and HR110, honoring Pastor William J. Barber II, a Black theologist in the image of Rev. Jeremiah Wright and a pro-CRT advocate.

Boyd also did some colleague-unfriendly things, such as moving to send bills to summer study without prior discussion. On 3/31 in Banking & Consumer Affairs, he moved to send Hulsey’s HB110, which would require all 911 calls to go direct and perhaps save lives, to Summer Study. Hulsey was not given an opportunity to rebut. We think Boyd has huge potential but needs to pay more attention to the wants and needs of his constituents and less to leadership and lobbyists.
