Senator Jeff Yarbro, (D) District 21, Nashville, is the first to speak up with his opinion on issues. He is persistent; we give him that.
He could use some coaching on elocution. One of the leadership qualities on which TLRC scores members is their eloquence as well as elocution. Senator Yarbro lost points on those elements.
Yarbro has a 31% vote score, reflective of sixteen votes contrary to TLRC recommendations and seven times the senator voted in agreement with our positions. Senator Yarbro sponsored eighty-nine bills, eight of which passed into law, and none of which TLRC chose to score. Most are designed to support the agenda of the left in ways similar to current federal policies being pushed.
Though TLRC did not score it, Senator Yarbro passed the following bill that we approve:
SB0415 enacts the “SEM Advancement Act,” which requires a local board of education or charter school governing body to develop and adopt a policy that establishes criteria for the enrollment of students in grades seven through twelve into available advanced English language arts, mathematics, and science courses.
We do not need more laws; we need better laws, and enforcement of the laws already on the books. The grassroots are looking for courage in our legislators: courage to stand up for constitutional principles over pressure from party leadership and paid lobbyists.
We are at a crisis point and now is the time to stand for the people instead of special interests, the wealthy, and well-connected, and against those who assume power through corruption and coercion. If we do not, we could very well lose our republic and our liberties. Democrats and Republicans alike need to step up now to save our constitutionally protected rights and liberties. Our republic is under attack!
