NASHVILLE, March 28, 2016– This past week, the Tennessee General Assembly was officially named the most conservative legislature in the entire country during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. The premier national conservative conference was attended by over 5,000 grassroots activists and elected officials from across the United States.
Cited in the award presentation was the General Assembly’s commitment to fiscal conservatism, cutting taxes, and efforts made to increase competition and attract new businesses to the state. In addition, earlier this year, the American Conservative Union — the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation — presented awards to the majority of House Republicans as tribute to the positive conservative direction they have guided the state over the last several years.
“It is truly an honor for our Tennessee General Assembly to receive such prestigious recognition for our work,” stated State Representative Bryan Terry, (R-Murfreesboro). “To receive such national recognition requires a collective effort of our elected officials, as well as the faith and confidence from Tennesseans who have voted for conservative ideals.”
Rep. Terry, just a few months ago, was recognized by the ACU for conservative excellence and given an ACU conservative rating of 100%. Said Rep. Terry, “While many of us are guided with Constitutional and conservative principles, we still have much work to do as we move Tennessee forward. I’m excited for the opportunity to help lead our great state.”
This year’s CPAC event included panels and discussions with dozens of well-known conservatives from around the country, along with speeches from the major candidates running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Rep. Bryan Terry, MD serves as the Republican Chairman of the Bi-partisan freshman caucus and serves on the Health full and sub committees, as well as on the Consumer and Human Resource committee. He lives in Murfreesboro and represents District 48 which is the eastern half of Rutherford County.
