Rep. Vaughan, (R) District 95 has served in the Tennessee State House since 2016. Rep. Vaughan has a respectable vote score of 69%, showing some room for improvement. His leadership grade of F indicates a personal lack of pro-freedom initiatives. Leadership grades are based on sponsorships, co-sponsorships, amendments, and other acts, both good (+) and bad (-).

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.

Rep. Vaughan supported the following TLRC endorsed bills:

• HB1137/SB1197 – No restrictions on church activities in declared emergency
• HB1749/SB2285 – Court decisions de novo, not based on a state agency’s interpretation.
• HB1867/SB1823 – Vaccine exemptions protected.
• HB1871/SB1982 – Recognition that natural immunity is equal or superior to vaccine.
• HB1960/SB1884 – No government vaccine mandates
• HB2067/SB2189 Would reduce number of votes necessary to keep a minor party on ballot
• HB2128/SB2245 – Election integrity measures (weak)
• HB2310/SB2023 – Fee for out-of-US money transfer. [Failed H. Commerce]
• 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

Here are five TLRC-opposed bills that Senator Niceley supported:

• HB0204/SB0136 The Crown Act- protecting ethnic hairstyles in the work place
• HB1201/SB1005 Changes in campaign finance giving advantage to incumbents; limiting freedom of speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK5Ov35oRxI
• HB2142/SB2395 – “Juneteenth” as an official Tennessee holiday
• HB2609/SB2890 – Cincinnati Reds 80% tax-break for Chattanooga farm team.
• HB2886/SB2901 – Provides $500M for Titans to build new stadium.
• HB8002/SB8002 – Provides $678,218,300 of taxpayer money for Ford to build an electric vehicle plant in W. TN

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. Jobs would come to Tennessee if we were to actually reform our education system and educate instead of indoctrinate. 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.

Rep. Vaughan has potential to be a leader in the battle against bigger government and for our 10th amendment rights 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
