Senate District 08

Senator Niceley: (R) 1st Vice-Chair, Senate Energy, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, 2nd Vice-Chair, Senate Transportation and Safety Committee, Member, Senate Commerce and Labor Committee. Senator Nicely lives up to his name: he is nice. And he does sponsor bold legislation. TLRC recommended 3 of his bills: SJR03 would have amended the state constitution to prohibit a state property tax; turned out it wasn't necessary as another bill passed that eliminated elements that make it impossible for the state to impose a property tax. SB27 would have required our US senate candidate be nominated by the member of the GA which would take us closer to what our founding fathers envisioned before the 17th amendment changed that dictum. SB362 would have further reformed civil asset forfeiture which is an affront to those who believe in due process. It was sent to summer study in the house and the senate was relieved from dealing with it. Senator Nicely co-sponsored 2 additional TLRC recommended bills. He could have done better on his voting record. We look forward working with the senator to achieve better results in 2020. In 2018: two (2) bills that TLRC supported. SB2117 passed but SB2180 was severely compromised. Co-sponsored three (3) bills that TLRC supported. Voted against the gas tax. Senator Niceley is consistently on the right side of issues that impact ordinary Tennesseans.
