Tracking Bills of the 111th General Assembly

Tuesday, 19 February 2019

With the 111th General Assembly underway, you will hear and see stories about one of our elected officials representing Cannon County sponsoring or co-sponsoring a bill. Citizens have the ability to track those bills as they make their way in the halls of the capitol.
 
Governor Bill Lee is inviting public comment on these bills.  According to the Governor’s website, “As part of my commitment to an open and transparent government, we have created this bill review page to invite public comments on bills passed by the General Assembly and presented to me for consideration. By bringing more Tennesseans into the process more directly, I believe we will increase accountability in how our laws are made.”

The website is: capitol.tn.gov/legislation.
 
A quick check of the site reflects that State Senator Mark Pody this session is sponsoring 47 bills, co-sponsoring 2 bills.  State Representative Clark Boyd is presently sponsoring 15 bills, co-sponsoring 11 bills.
