Statement from Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Bill Ketron regarding adjournment of the 2012 legislative session

(NASHVILLE, TN), May 1, 2012  —  “Tennesseans expect their state government to be responsive and to live within its means.  The budget we passed is balanced, is $1 billion less than the current year — but maintains essential core services to many Tennesseans who need them.   Nobody got everything they wanted but the final product was a responsible budget that is reflective of what the citizens of this state asked us to do.” 

“Legislation passed this year continues that focus by working to make state government more efficient and effective, and strives to create a business climate that invites jobs to our state.  We also passed significant legislation to curb prescription drug abuse and stop the flow of synthetic drugs into Tennessee.”

“I am very pleased with the work of this General Assembly.  In the end, we all worked together for the benefit of all Tennesseans.”
