NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee (AFP-TN), the leading conservative grassroots organization fighting for lower taxes and limited government in Tennessee, named state Rep. Dennis Powers a “Champion of Prosperity.”

“Rep. Powers is a leading advocate for taxpayers with a stellar fiscally conservative voting record,” said AFP-TN State Director Tori Venable. “His record reflects our shared ideals of lower taxes and less government regulations.”

The “Champion of Prosperity” award is given to lawmakers who have distinguished themselves by scoring 90 or higher on AFP-TN’s biannual legislative scorecard, which measures lawmakers’ allegiance to economic freedom and fiscal responsibility. Rep. Powers has been named a “Taxpayer Hero” with a score of 103.

“I am honored to receive the Champion of Prosperity Award from Americans for Prosperity,” said Powers. “Reducing regulations and taxes has always been a priority of mine and I think it has had an immense economic impact on our state.”
