Representative Glen Casada (R) has a vote score of 63%, placing him #58-61 (ties) in a body of 99. His leadership grade of C places him at #34. Leadership grades are based on sponsorships, co-sponsorships, amendments, both meritorious (+) and deleterious (-), and other bold and courageous acts (+) or furtive, unprincipled acts (-).

TLRC scores and grades reflect the entire process, not just end results. We count every vote on every selected bill. Bills are selected for their value to ordinary Tennesseans, or their insult to those values. We encourage our General Assembly members to support the former and oppose the latter. When they don’t, they lose points.

Representative Casada supported the following TLRC endorsed bills:

  • HB1137/SB1197 – No restrictions on church activities in declared emergency

  • HB2746/SB2188 – Makes Ivermectin available over the counter

 TLRC-opposed bills that Representative Casada supported:

 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. Jobs would come to Tennessee if we were actually to reform our education system and to educate instead of indoctrinate. A well-educated workforce would be unique in America and every business would want to be in our right-to-work, no-income-tax state. Members should rethink these handouts.

We regret that Representative Casada is not returning to the state house. We have enjoyed working with him. We need principled members to battle against government expansion, to protect our tenth amendment rights, and to make good policy decisions for ordinary Tennesseans by Tennesseans. We are in crisis. We can and must do better.

By listing these bills, we hope that tells you what you need to know about your General Assembly members. We encourage you to reach out and let them know how you feel about the various issues and VOTE accordingly. To contact members, go to: https://www.capitol.tn.gov
