Tennessee lawmakers have adjourned for the year and with that comes the end of the 2022 Legislative Updates podcast season! TBA Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs Berkley Schwarz and TBA lobbyist and Adams and Reese attorney Brad Lampley are here to recap the biggest highlights and new from the 112th General Assembly. The two discuss redistricting, the truth in sentencing bill and more. In final discussions about the professional privilege tax, Lampley urges listeners to “keep the heat on” your legislators about repealing the tax. “This is really the time for one-on-one contact with your elected official,” Lampley says. “Develop those relationships and by all means continue to be a resource for them going forward and advocate for the issues you believe in.” You can catch Legislative Updates live and in-person at the TBA Annual Convention in June.
