Family and Personal:
Rep. Terry is married with two children and is a physician.
He is a member of the Tennessee Society of Anesthesiologists, Tennessee Medical Association, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, American Society of Anesthesiologists, American Medical Association, Stones River Medical Academy, Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Diplomat of the American Board of Anesthesiology, and the NRA.
Councils and Boards:
He is chair of the House Health Subcommittee.
Representative Bryan Terry (R) has served District 48 since 2015. He is Chairman of the House Health committee. He boasts a vote score of 93% and a Leadership grade of B.
Chairman Terry has a challenging committee, both for the difficult issues with which they have had to deal these last few years, but also with the make-up of the committee. Perhaps a stronger hand was required to keep this committee on track.
Two important bills died an early death for lack of a second. This is unacceptable and, while the chairpersons are mainly responsible, every member of that committee should be ashamed. If they did not like the bill, put forth the argument and see if it is sufficient to kill the bill with nays. Not allow the sponsor to make his or her argument for the bill is arrogant and cowardly.
Terry supported most of our chosen bills with his votes, and many with his co-sponsorship. Those bills supported education reform, medical freedom, second amendment rights, fiscal responsibility, governmental transparency, election integrity, and constitutional fidelity.
Where we differed was on:
- HB1201/SB1005 Changes in campaign finance giving advantage to incumbents; limiting freedom of speech
- HB8002/SB8002 Provides $678,218,300 of taxpayer money for Ford to build an electric vehicle plant in W. TN
TLRC opposed those bills. Rep. Terry voted aye.
We encourage Chairman Terry to be his own man and use more aggressive leadership in managing his committee.
