Senate District 11

Senator Watson: (R) Chair: Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee, Chair, Senate Rules Committee, Chair, Joint Pensions and Insurance Committee, Member Senate Health and Welfare Committee, and Senate Commerce and Labor Committee. Senator Watson co-sponsored only one bill recommended by TLRC and sponsored none. We have little on which to recommend him. We feel he and the entire senate could do much better for the people of Tennessee. Seven of our recommended bills were derailed in the senate final stages after passing the house.
