This month, lawmakers at the Tennessee General Assembly worked and campaigned from their districts and continued fundraising. In November, half of the Senators and all of the Representatives are up for reelection. In September, Governor Lee (R-Franklin) announced an extension of the state of emergency, indicating that such a measure would stay in place as long as President Donald Trump’s administration keeps its declaration in place. In the same announcement, Governor Lee also lifted all coronavirus-related restrictions on businesses and gatherings in 89 counties of the state; however, county health departments in Tennessee’s six largest cities will continue to be able to set their own regulations.

Adams and Reese LLP, along with the Tennessee Trucking Association, sponsored two major fundraising events in September, a dinner for House Speaker Cameron Sexton (R- Crossville) on September 14th and another dinner for House Assistant Majority Leader Ron Gant (R- Rossville) on September 29th. Both events, which took place at Giovanni West in Belle Meade, were a great success and provided the group with the chance to discuss important emerging topics with legislative leadership at the General Assembly. As always, it is a pleasure to represent you at the legislature.
