House District 97

Rep. Jim Coley (R) chairs the House Higher Education Subcommittee, and is a member of the Education Committee, the Consumer and Human Resources Committee, and the Employee Affairs Subcommittee. He sponsored no bills scored by TLRC but did co-sponsor five of our favored bills. Unfortunately he co-sponsored one bill be disfavored so negated his five by one. We have had the pleasure of talking to Chairman Coley and find him to be a very pleasant gentleman. We look forward to working with him in 2020. In 2018: Sponsored no (0) bills keyed by TLRC. Co-sponsored six (6) bills favored by TLRC. Voted for the Gas Tax.
