House District 87

Rep. Karen Camper (D) serves as a member: Banking and Consumer Affairs Subcommittee, Calendar and Rules Committee, Commerce Committee, Select Ethics Committee, Select Ethics Subcommittee, Finance, Ways, and Means Committee, Finance, Ways, and Means Subcommittee, Government Operations Committee, Select Committee on Rules, Joint Commerce, Labor, Transportation and Agriculture, and the Joint Pensions and Insurance. Vote score, leadership grade, and legislation information here is from 2020, the second year of the 111th General Assembly Session. It will be updated at the conclusion of the 2021, the first year of the 112th General Assembly Session. Look for that information around the end of May or early June, 2021. Rep. Camper neither sponsored or co-sponsored any bills supported by TLRC based on our liberty values. She had a higher than her party's average vote score of 87.5%. Still, it was below the all-member average of 93.5% and we observed no other instances of noticeable leadership. We should all be able to agree that America is the best country on earth and Tennessee is among the best states, and that we should work together to preserve and expand those ideals.
