These Tennessee senators consistently fought for economic freedom this legislative session.

NASHVILLE — AFP-TN has completed its legislative scorecard and will release the final scores within the week. The scores are based on votes taken, survey response, and sponsorship of free-market legislation. The legislators scoring the highest overall were selected as our Champions for Prosperity.

AFP- TN state director Andrew Ogles said the following:

“It is an honor to name the Senate Champions for Prosperity. They have proven themselves dedicated servants, doing what’s best for our state. These leaders support statewide school-choice vouchers, stopping the federal over-reach of Common Core, and repealing the Hall Income tax. These issues will define the next generation as well as the one before us. Our children’s ability to get a quality education and our elders’ ability to thrive in retirement depend upon the issues facing us today.”

Champions for Prosperity Senators: Mae Beavers, Mike Bell, Janice Bowling, Stacey Campfield, Mark Green, Jack Johnson, Bill Ketron, Jim Summerville, and Jim Tracy.

“We commend these members for achieving this honor, leading our state to a brighter, more prosperous future,” said Ogles.

The legislative scorecard for both chambers will be released in the coming week.
