De-Annexation Bill & Municipal Insurance Transparency Bill

New Legislative Session has started and we need to encourage lawmakers to continue to strengthen personal property rights in TN. The following bills need to be presented:

– Citizen De-Annexation Legislation (to reverse prior forced annexation by cities in TN)

– Tennessee Municipal Insurance Transparency Bill – ( The TN State Controller or Insurance Commissioner Appoints an Independent Outside Auditor to review municipal insurance providers risk pool fund usage if 50% of fund is derived from tax payer dollars. The results of the audit/spending will be publicly available under sunshine laws). This new law would expose slush funds being used by municipal insurance groups to push lobbing and campaign activities. Tax payers need to see where their funds are being spent.

We have drafts of bills in process and need you to call your representatives to support this effort.
