Legislators Draft Bills, Prep for the Governor’s Inauguration

The state Senate and House will convene this afternoon to continue organizational activity. During this organizational period, offices for new legislators are being set up, offices of former members who have now moved into leadership positions are, in some cases, being moved to larger office quarters, and legislators continue to work on drafting bills.

This week we were asked for our input on three different bills being prepared by one of the House members, and Family Action of Tennessee continued to work with legislators it has asked to consider sponsoring legislation of interest to its constituency.

The House and Senate will convene in joint convention on Saturday morning to call for the inauguration of Bill Lee as governor. Speaking of the governor, Family Action of Tennessee also provided a briefing to Lee’s Deputy and Chief Legal Counsel this week on various issues.
