Senate District 02

Senator Swann: (R) 1st Vice-Chair, Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, member: Senate Transportation and Safety Committee, and Senate Health and Welfare Committee. Senator Swann co-sponsored 2 bills of the 32 recommended by TLRC. We observed little else to recommend merit to his leadership. Vote scores are reasonably good in the senate as a whole because they avoid voting on bills that really matter by sending those controversial or difficult pieces of legislation to the dust-bins of summer study, re-referred back to a committee, or defer them to the next session. Seven of our preferred bills were derailed at the last stage, after passing in the house and making it through committee(s) in the senate. Senator Swann and the rest of the senate must do better for the people of Tennessee.
