Rep. Scott Cepicky (R) new in 2019, serves as Chair, Education Instruction Subcommittee, Member, Education Administration Committee, Education Instruction Committee, Insurance Committee, Insurance Subcommittee, K-12 Subcommittee.

Cepicky is a dynamic and effective leader. Although he was new to the General Assembly in 2019, he has swiftly emerged as the education spearhead. He leads the members of the House on average by a wide margin on leadership with an A+, sponsoring two of our chosen bills, co-sponsoring ten, and being instrumental in the writing and passing of several others.

Cepicky’s vote score of 96% was only marred by his support of HB141, the bill giving special tax-exemptions to the film and video industry, and one unfortunate committee vote for HB1379: a bill to require insurance companies to cover infertility treatment, which he later decided was inadvisable. He was one of few members of the house to vote against HB703, a bill that will provide a multi-million-dollar state funding grant for a proposed minor league baseball stadium for the Tennessee Smokies, a double-A team which is owned by University of Tennessee President Randy Boyd.

We hold Chairman Cepicky up as a model for our members. His courage, civility, perseverance, and honesty are to be admired and replicated. We thank him for his dedication.
