Local lawmakers look back on 113th session [Video]

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — Northeast Tennessee’s lawmakers are back in the region after adjourning the 113th legislative session Thursday, touting their accomplishments in passing the $52 billion state budget as well as work on education and immigration policy.

Sen. Jon Lundberg (R-Bristol) told News Channel 11 that the success is partly due to what lawmakers didn’t do.

“We have no state income tax, we have triple-a bond ratings, no road debt, and we have a balanced budget with no new debt,” Lundberg said.

He highlighted investments of more than $250 million for K-12 education, salaries for 50 new state troopers, and funding to send a second and third round of Tennessee National Guard troops to Texas’ southern border.

“All this with no new taxes,” Lundberg added.
