TENNESSEE CAPITOL REPORT continues its 4th season as a 30-minute show on Tennessee’s Public Television stations this Sunday.  Shot on location at the State Capitol in Nashville, the show offers in-depth interviews and behind-the-scenes video covering Tennessee’s Legislature. 

This weekend, airing on Sunday morning, March 25th, the program features the leadership of the 110th General Assembly discussing key legislation that is moving through committees for floor votes and passage:

Senate Speaker Pro Tempore, Sen. Ferrell Haile, (R-Gallatin); Senate Republican Caucus Chair, Sen. Bill Ketron (R-Murfreesboro); House Assistant Leader, Rep. David Hawk (R-Greeneville); House Republican Caucus Chair, Rep. Ryan Williams (R-Cookeville).  

“This episode will cover progress on opioids legislation and the University of Tennessee Board of Regents” said producer Tim Weeks.  “But viewers will also hear about a variety of bills, including legislation regarding mental health and gun ownership, investments in 5G mobile broadband infrastructure, and TennCare work requirements.”

Also on the show:  Rep. Darren Jernigan (D-Old Hickory) and Rep. Sam Whitson (R-Franklin) discuss a bill to end child marriage in Tennessee. A feature story also looks at the family business, Rock City Construction, which is restoring the State Capitol cupola.

Produced to offer Tennesseans insight into the issues and personalities guiding the General Assembly, TENNESSEE CAPITOL REPORT is hosted by TV and radio personality Chip Hoback and produced by award-winning producer Tim Weeks of TWAPictures in Nashville for the Tennessee Public Television Council, representing six PBS affiliates across the state.
