NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A new iPhone app billed as the first of its kind in Tennessee allows users to connect with members of the current Legislature.

The app, just released, contains searchable contact, staff and committee information for state representatives and senators.

It was developed by the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association and the Nashville-based Bass Berry & Sims law firm. For the past 30 years, the cooperative has produced a print directory of the Legislature.

A version for the iPad and Android devices will be available soon.
