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, February 25th, the program features the leadership of the 110th General Assembly discussing Gov. Haslam’s legislative priorities and the agenda of the Republican super-majority. Featured on this episode are:

Sen. Mark Norris, (R-Collierville) & Rep. Glen Casada (R-Franklin), Republican Leaders of Senate & House
Sen. Lee Harris (D-Memphis), Democratic Leader of Senate

“This episode will explore where there is contrast in the parties, but also where they are working together on a bi-partisan basis” said producer Tim Weeks.  “The opioids crisis brings legislators together, but the school shooting in Florida on February 14th highlights different viewpoints on 2nd Amendment rights.”

Also on the show:  Sen. Bo Watson (R-Hixson) & Rep. Mike Carter (R-Ooltewah) discuss legislation which will change vehicle emission testing in Tennessee.
Rep. Timothy Hill (R-Blountville) is featured in a Facebook member profile, and Architect David Plummer discusses the remodeling of the Legislature’s Cordell Hull office building.

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.
