I appreciate the #TNLeg for passing the 2013-14 budget. It takes a thoughtful & strategic approach, making key investments & savings.

GOP leadership passing balanced budgets with tax cuts for all is why Tennessee ranks 2nd in fiscal freedom.


State Rep. Beth Harwell, Speaker of House


This is an excellent budget that is not only balanced but cuts taxes for all Tennesseans. Washington, DC: take notes.

TN Senate passes $32.7B state budget, 32-0-0. No budget is perfect but this one is excellent. Honored to work with all members on this budget.


State Rep. Kevin Brooks,



TN House passes $32B budget: Balanced budget. Less than 1% increase. $100M to Rainy Day Fund. Cut Sales Tax on Food. Fully Funds the BEP.


State Rep. Kent Calfee, R-Kingston


Proud to have just voted for a balanced budget that also reduces taxes by $43M for Tennessee working families!


Drew Johnson, Free Press opinion page editor


TN Republicans passed the most expensive budget ever and the spending cap was busted just like when the Dems controlled the legislature.
