Senate District 17

Senator Pody: (R) 1st Vice-Chair, Senate Transportation and Safety Committee, 2nd Vice-Chair, Senate Energy, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, Chair, Judiciary and Government Subcommittee of Joint Government Operations Committee, Member, Senate Government Operations Committee. Senator Pody is a stand-out among his fellow senators. He has courageously sponsored strong bills to address real problems in our culture and our government. Of his 44 non-local bills, only 4 were passed. TLRC chose 5 of Senator Pody's bills to recommend; none passed in the senate and 3 of those passed through the house and through committees in the senate before being derailed at the end. We find this unacceptable and a disservice to the people of Tennessee. Senator Pody is a model for his fellow senators. If they would follow, Tennessee could lead the nations in re-establishing the policies that secure our liberties and preserve our heritage.
