Senate District 27

Senator Jackson: (R) Chair, Senate Calendar Committee, 1st Vice-Chair, Senate Government Operations Committee, Member, Senate State and Local Government Committee, and Senate Health and Welfare Committee. Senator Jackson sponsored 2 TLRC endorsed bills this year: SB241 removes various provisions regarding state property tax which makes a state property tax improbable in the future, and SB1418, which denies any tax-payer money to entities that provide abortion services. The former passed but the latter, after passing in the house, was deferred in the senate. This is too frequent the case, where the people's will is being ignored out of fear of lawsuits or bowing to special interests. If we continue to back down, the promoters of "fundamental change" win and the good people of Tennessee lose. Senator Jackson also co-sponsored 7 additional TLRC recommended bills, earning a very good leadership grade. His vote record could use improvement. We shall attempt to persuade him to support with his vote, more of the freedom-preserving bills in the future.
