Senate District 15

Senator Bailey: (R) Chair, Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, Member, Senate Transportation and Safety Committee. Senator Bailey sponsored a TLRC recommended bill applying for a block grant for Tenncare, it passed but will take time to work through the state-federal system. He co-sponsored 3 additional bills that we endorsed. For the most part, the senate has been a disappointment this year. Seven of our 32 recommended bills were derailed by senate actions at the last stage, after passing in the House and making it through committee(s) in the senate. This is unacceptable and disrespects the will of the house members and the citizens who elected them. We hope we can work together for better results for all next year. 2018: Sponsored no (0) bills supported by TLRC. Co-sponsored 8 (8) bills supported by TLRC. Vote for the gas tax.
