“Today was a vote of confidence for our leadership team. Over the last two years, we’ve accomplished much and our reforms have produced a better environment for private sector job growth, ensured every child has a better chance at receiving a high quality education, and limited the burden of government. I am confident our Caucus will build on that same track record in the next two years.
“With Speaker Harwell leading the House, Chairman Casada guiding the Caucus, and new members in leadership, we’re going to have a successful 108thGeneral Assembly that focuses on the problems Tennesseans are facing and provides common sense, conservative solutions so Tennessee is made a better place to live, work, and raise a family.”
Rep. Glen Casada (R-Franklin) was elected as the chairman of the House Republican Caucus.
He said, “In the 107th General Assembly, we did a lot to change how the Capitol operates internally and created a better environment for job creation throughout the state. Now, it’s time to take the next step.
“Over the next two years, I look forward to leading a solutions-based Caucus that answers the needs of our citizens, creates more opportunity for economic growth, and enhances the educational landscape for our children.
“I am so grateful for the support shown by my colleagues today. It is clear this Republican Megamajority is ready to move with common sense, conservative initiatives and I’m ready to lead them.”
