Senate District 16

Senator Bowling: (R) Deputy Speaker, 2nd Vice Chair, Senate Government Operations Committee, Vice-Chair, Education, Health and General Welfare Subcommittee of Joint Government Operations Committee Member, Senate Judiciary Committee, and Senate Transportation and Safety Committee. Senator Bowling is an independent woman, for the most part. She was a dissenting vote sending the heartbeat bill to summer study and we have witnessed other incidents of will and independent action. She sponsored SB568 which deletes the requirement that 52 percent of the 5 percent commission retained by county registers for collecting recordation tax must be remitted to the state treasurer. We support this bill because the local registrars desperately need these funds and the state does not so much. It got no traction but we hope it returns next year so we can help it along. Senator Bowling co-sponsored and additional 8 of our recommended bills for a nice grade of A. She earned a respectable vote score of 87% but fell from the 97% of 2018. We appreciate her independent spirit, enjoy working with her, and look forward to doing so again in 2020. 2018: Sponsored one (1) bill supported by TLRC. Co-sponsored thirteen (13) bills supported by TLRC. Voted against the gas tax. Senator Bowling is a constitutional conservative serving her district with distinction.
