(NASHVILLE) – State Senator Jon Lundberg (R-Bristol) received two new appointments from Lt. Governor Randy McNally as the Tennessee General Assembly reconvened last week, including being elevated to a leadership role as First Vice-Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The committee is responsible for hearing all bills dealing with civil laws, criminal laws, judicial proceedings, apportionment of elected officials and governing bodies, and all matters relating to the courts, as well as law enforcement.
“Senator Lundberg understands the judiciary and the importance of law and order,” said Lt. Gov. McNally. “I know he will do well in this new role.”
Lundberg previously served as Chairman of the Civil Justice Committee in the House of Representatives.
Lundberg was also appointed to the Senate Education Committee which is responsible for legislation concerning schools and secondary education, as well as school employees, administrators, teachers and bus drivers, and student assessments.
“Nothing is more important to our state’s future than education and I appreciate the opportunity to partner with my colleagues, teachers and parents to continue moving student success forward in Tennessee,” said Sen. Lundberg.
Senator Lundberg will also remain on the Government Operations Committee where he serves as Vice-Chair. The Senate Government Operations Committee oversees legislation to create, reauthorize, and reorganize or sunset departments, commissions, boards, agencies or councils of state government to make them more efficient and effective. The Committee also hears bills regarding licensing and/or certification of occupational and/or professional groups and reviews regulations promulgated by all Tennessee departments, commissions, boards or agencies.
