Councils and Boards:
He is the Democratic Caucus Chairman.



Rep. Mike Stewart: (D) Member, Children and Family Affairs Subcommittee, Civil Justice Committee, Government Operations Committee, and Joint Judiciary and Government. He voted with TLRC on five bills, and against us on fourteen. He did not vote on seven occasions for the bills we scored–we do not know why. We were unable to count no-votes because of COVID guidance. His vote score is 35%. Powell did not sponsor or co-sponsor any of the TLRC favored bills.

Stewart usually 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 two out of ten.

Of the thirteen bills he sponsored, one of them passed into law:

HB1298 clarifies that wireless communication includes text messages sent and received on smart devices for purposes of the Anti-Phishing Act.

We look forward to back-to-normal conditions at the capitol and hope to find some common ground in the 2022 session.
