NASHVILLE, Tenn.– State Rep. Todd Warner, R-Chapel Hill, has been ranked among the most conservative members of the Tennessee General Assembly by the American Conservative Union (ACU).
Warner received the fifth highest score given to any member of the Tennessee House or Senate for his support of conservative positions during the 2021 legislative session, according to an analysis of roll call votes by the ACU.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the ACU for my voting record,” Warner said. “My goal is to always support true conservative legislation and do anything I can to limit the government’s role in the everyday lives of Tennesseans.”
As part of its analysis, the ACU looked at votes on legislation that addressed a variety of issues including bills that prohibit government from mandating COVID-19 vaccinations or imposing vaccine passports, strengthen Second Amendment protections by establishing “constitutional carry” in the state and ban critical race theory in schools.
Warner sponsored the Tennessee Firearm Protection Act last year which prohibits the use of state or local funds to enforce any federal law or executive order regulating the sale of firearms, ammunition or firearm accessories if they violate state law or the Tennessee Constitution. The ACU supported the legislation.
According to its website, the ACU believes that the Constitution of the United States is the best political charter yet created by men for governing themselves. It is also the organization’s belief that the constitution is designed to guarantee the free exercise of the inherent rights of the individual through strictly limiting the power of government.
Warner represents District 92 in the Tennessee House of Representatives which covers all of Marshall and part of Franklin, Lincoln and Marion counties. He is a member of the Education Instruction, Government Operations and Naming and Designating committees. He also serves on the Education Instruction and Joint Commerce, Labor, Transportation and Agriculture subcommittees. Warner can be reached at 615-741-4170 or by email at email@example.com.
