Lt. Governor Randy McNally –(R) District 5, Speaker of the Senate has disappointed the grassroots in the past and has little time to leave a greater legacy. Lt. Governor McNally, although considering a huge number of bills, has only endorsed one TLRC chosen bill with his co-sponsorship:
SJR2 – Kelsey – Puts Right-to-Work into our Tennessee constitution, making it much more difficult to rescind (passed).
TLRC chose to sponsor one of the Lt. Governor’s bills:
SB0717/HB1047 – C. Sexton/McNally – No probation or parole for child sex abusers (passed).
Senator Bailey lost leadership points because of two bills he supported that TLRC opposed:
SB0736/HB0141 – Johnson/Lamberth (a Governor’s bill with which we take issue) – Special tax exemption for the film and video industry which was supported by a large majority of the General Assembly (passed). TLRC does not support special carve-outs for cherry-picked industries. The government should not be picking winners and losers.
SB0783/HB1204 – Massey/Zachary – Authorizes a special sales and use tax allocation to finance Randy Boyd’s Baseball stadium in Knoxville at the expense of Tennessee taxpayers. Boyd is a mega millionaire (passed).

TLRC opposed those bills on fairness, constitutional, and fiscal-responsibility principles.
Lt. Governor McNally sponsored seven bills, five of which passed into law, one of which TLRC scored. It is not customary of the leadership to sponsor many bills. To access, go to: https://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/sponsorlist/default.aspx?id=S050&ga=112
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 various leaders, special interests, and paid lobbyists. Lt. Governor McNally could lead the senate in a more daring direction. He has disappointed the grassroots in the past and has little time to leave a greater legacy.
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.
