Statement from Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris regarding adjournment of the 2012 legislative session

(NASHVILLE, TN), May 1, 2012  —  “”Better schools, safer streets and a sound economy. These have been my focus during the 107th General Assembly,” said Senator Norris.  “Our crime package this year completes several years of successful efforts to crack down on repeat and violent offenders, gangs and domestic violence.”

“We also passed a balanced budget that is fiscally responsible and added to our state’s Rainy Day Fund.  Tennessee has turned a critical corner. Ten years ago we stood our ground against the income tax. Today, we have cut taxes — killing the death tax, eliminating the gift tax, and reducing the sales tax on food. We’ve turned a critical corner at a critical time with a renewed sense of confidence in our destiny.”
