Rep. Mary Littleton: (R) Chair, Children and Family Affairs Subcommittee, Member, Civil Justice Committee, Corrections Subcommittee, Government Operations Committee, State Government Committee, and the Joint Education, Health and General Welfare committee. Rep. Littleton is one of our champions, supporting a whopping twenty-eight of the TLRC positions on chosen bills with only one dissent, earning her a 97% vote score. She co-sponsored a record thirteen of our chosen bills, some very controversial, showing courage:

SR0023 – Rudd – Resolution creating a bi-cameral panel to research the recall of Judge Ellen Hobbs Lyle (failed in House Civil Justice subcommittee).

A media story on the subject

SB0843/HB0513 – Rose/Gant – Increased penalties for various lawless activities when protesting/rioting

SB0115/HB0116 – Garrett/Haile – Human/sex traffickers often transport groups of victims in trucks. Under this law commercial driver’s license (CDL) will be denied for life for those convicted of human/sex trafficking (passed).

SB0228/HB0003 – Hensley/Cepicky – Protects female athletes by prohibiting biological males from participating in women’s sports (passed).

SB318/HB18 – Hensley/Griffey – Real Constitutional Carry. This bill would be totally compliant with the second amendment of the U.S. Constitution (placed behind the budget in the house and deferred in the senate).

SB0451/HB0881 – Bell/Terry – Increases penalties for rioters from out of state (“Aggravated” rioter) (passed).

SB0623/HB0580 – Bell/Ragan – The teaching of Critical Race Theory is prohibited in TN public schools (passed)

SB0769/HB0782 – Johnson/Lamberth – Common Core material is prohibited in public school curriculum (passed).

SB0828/HB1181 – – Rudd / Bowling – Fetal remains must be disposed of by burial or cremation, making it prohibitive to harvest or sell
fetal body parts (passed).

SB1115/HB1302 – White/Bricken – Removes the Statute of Limitations for those convicted of sex trafficking children (passed).

SB1335/HB0928 – Hensley/S. Campbell – 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Act: voids for Tennessee any Federal laws or policies that violate the 2nd Amendment (passed with amendment that weakens).

SB1573/HB37 – Bailey/Ogles – State or local government prohibited from designating essential or non-essential businesses (passed).

SJR2 – Kelsey – Puts Right-to-Work into our Tennessee constitution, making it much more difficult to rescind (passed).

Ms. Littleton earned a commendable ten out of ten on constitutional fidelity. Her only errant vote was supporting:

SB0736/HB0141 – Johnson/Lamberth (a Governor’s bill with which we take issue) – Special tax exemption for the film and video industry which was supported by a large majority of the General Assembly (passed). TLRC does not support special carve-outs for cherry-picked industries. The government should not be picking winners and losers.

Chairman Littleton sponsored twenty-seven bills, fourteen of which passed into law, many of which are to protect children from abuse.

We do not need more laws; we need better laws, and enforcement of the laws we have. The grassroots are looking for courage in our legislators: courage to stand up for constitutional principles over pressure from leadership and paid lobbyists. Mary Littleton can be that legislator! We are at a crisis point and now is the time to stand for the people instead of special interests, the wealthy, and well-connected, and against those who assume power through corruption and coercion. If we do not, we could very well lose our republic and our liberties.
