Senate District 12

Senator Yager: (R) Caucus Chairman, Member: Senate State and Local Government Committee, Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee, Senate Ethics Committee, and Joint Fiscal Review Committee. Senator Yager sponsored no bills selected by TLRC and recommended for passing. He co-sponsored 3 of our recommended bills but was instrumental in derailing several others.. Many were passed in the house, which is closer to the will of the people, but were sidelined in the senate. We feel that Senator Yager, and the senate as a whole, must be much more responsive to, and respectful of, the will of the house and of the people of Tennessee.
