House District 86

Rep. Barbara Cooper is a member of the House Health Committee, Facilities, Licensure, & Regulations Subcommittee, Consumer and Human Resources Committee, and the Consumer Subcommittee. Ms. Cooper sponsored no bills supported by TLRC and co-sponsored one we favored and one we opposed, leaving her with no positive points. Her vote score is an abysmal 36%. TLRC choices are based on constitutional, fiscally responsible, and freedom-preserving principles. We encourage Rep. Cooper to consider those values. In 2018: Sponsored no (0) bills keyed by TLRC. Co-sponsored one (1) bills keyed by TLRC. Voted for the Gas Tax.
