Representative Rebecca Alexander (R) is fairly new, coming to the house in 2020. She has a vote score of 60%, placing her #66 in a body of 99. Her leadership grade of D places her at #38 and may be indicative of her inexperience. 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 Alexander supported the following TLRC endorsed bills:

  • HB1749/SB2285 – Court decisions de novo, not based on a state agency’s interpretation
  • HB1867/SB1823 – Vaccine exemptions protected
  • HB1870/SB1880 – No action against Dr.’s for Covid stance
  • HB1871/SB1982 – Recognition that natural immunity is equal or superior to vaccine
  • HB1873/SB1858 – Merchants must accept cash
  • HB1880/SB1830 – School boards – Freedom to speak
  • HB1960/SB1884 – No government vaccine mandates
  • HB2067/SB2189 – Would reduce number of votes necessayr to keep a minor party on ballot
  • HB2128/SB2245 – Election integrity measures.  (weak)
  • HB2316/SB2153 – No males in girls’ sports
  • HB2331/SB2558 – Auditable paper trail voting machines
  • HB2454/SB2292 – Redefines “obscene” to include educational material in K-12 making it unlawful
  • HB2666/SB2247 – Requires Textbook Commission to provide a list of approved material to GA members
  • HB2746/SB2188 – Makes Ivermectin available over the counter

A TLRC-supported bill that Representative Alexander opposed:

  • HB1137/SB1197 – No restrictions on church activities in declared emergency
  • HB2310/SB2023 – Fee for out-of-US money transfer

 TLRC-opposed bills that Representative Alexander 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. If we were actually to reform our education system and to educate instead of indoctrinate, jobs would come to Tennessee. 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.

Representative Alexander must always engage in the battle against bigger government and for constitutional principles. We need principled members like Lynn to battle against government expansion and for 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
