Family and Personal:

Rep. Bo Mitchell: (D) Member, Health Committee, Insurance Committee, Insurance Subcommittee, and Naming and Designating Committee. He voted with TLRC on seven bills and against us on twenty-one, which accounts for his 27% vote score. Rep. Mitchell did not sponsor or co-sponsor any of the TLRC favored bills. He did co-sponsor a bill that we opposed:

SB0425/HB1379 – Kumar/Massey – Would require insurers to cover infertility treatments which would result in higher premiums for all. Dictating to private business is antithetical to the U.S. and Tennessee constitutions but some of our legislators only remember that when it serves them (sent to Summer Study).

Mitchell almost always votes with his fellow party members against strong constitutional bills and supporting those that are neutral or more profligate with tax-payer money and expansive of government. He does not seem to understand the principles of freedom embodied in our constitution. His constitutional score is a one out of ten. Of the fourteen bills he sponsored, none of them passed into law. We look forward to back-to-normal conditions at the capitol and hope to find some common ground in the 2022 session.
