House District 65

Rep.Sam Whitson: (R) Chair: House Infrastructure Subcommittee, Member: Health Committee, Public Health Subcommittee, and Transportation Committee. Chairman Whitson co-sponsored only 3 of our TLRC recommended bills. We did not select any of his sponsored bills to score. We had little else to score him on leadership. Perhaps next year… He earned a respectable 90% vote score which give us optimism for future results. We look forward to a good working relationship. In 2018: Rep. Whitson was elected to replace Jeremy Durham, one of the conservative leaders in the House. Rep. Whitson sponsored no (0) bills scored by TLRC, co-sponsored four (4) bills favored by TLRC and one (1) bill opposed by TLRC. Rep. Whitson supported and voted for the Gas Tax.
