Senate District 21

Senator Yarbro: (D) 2nd Vice-Chair, Senate Calendar Committee, Member: Senate State and Local Government Committee, Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee, Senate Health and Welfare Committee, and Senate Rules Committee. Sen. Yarbro sponsored only 1 bill chosen for scoring by TLRC. It is one we opposed: legalization of gambling on sporting events. He co-sponsored one bill we recommended and one we opposed, leaving him with no merits to contribute to his grade. Sen. Yarbro is pleasant and courteous. We enjoy engaging with him. 2018: He sponsored one bill be approved: to require a paper trail for our elections in TN. It failed.
