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, April 29th, the program features the latest headlines and summaries of key legislation passed in this year’s session of the 110th General Assembly. Guests on the show include:

Sen. Ken Yager, (R-Kingston) and Rep. Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville) discussing opioids legislation; Rep. Dan Howell (R-Georgetown) on TennCare work requirements; Sen. Paul Bailey (R-Sparta) on school safety; Rep. Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) talks TN Ready.

Also on the show: Senate Democratic Caucus Chair, Sen. Jeff Yarbro (D-Nashville) offers a Democratic response to this year’s session.

A bonus story will highlight Ag Day on Capitol Hill...a day that everyone looks forward to, because of the farm animals on display and the friendly competition between the House and Senate. This year featured a cross-cut saw competition.

“There certainly has been some drama in the last days of the Legislature,” said producer Tim Weeks. “We’ll highlight some fireworks, like the problems with TN Ready, as well as major pieces of legislation passed this year.”

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.
