Representative Littleton Officially Sworn In as Member of 108th General Assembly
The House of Representatives today officially gaveled into session, marking the beginning of the 108th General Assembly in Tennessee. Representative Mary Littleton (R-Dickson) took the oath of office this week in Nashville and was officially sworn into the Tennessee House of Representatives.
Legislators are looking to build upon the success of the previous session that saw wasteful government spending cut from the budget, taxes cut for all Tennesseans, measures passed to encourage job growth, and numerous government reforms.
“I’m proud to be a part of the Tennessee General Assembly,” stated Representative Littleton. “Tennesseans have put their trust in us to work together and develop solutions that move Tennessee forward. I know we are going to have a great year working on issues that reflect the principles and values of everyday Tennesseans.”
Lawmakers have already signaled clear goals of balancing the budget, lowering the grocery tax, and ensuring every Tennessee student has access to a high quality education.
Littleton continued, “While Washington continually shirks its responsibility to govern, Tennesseans will once again see a General Assembly that operates effectively and listens to them. That is how government should work.”
Speaker Harwell added, “Representative Littleton joins an impressive group in the Tennessee General Assembly this year and I am excited about the opportunity to work with her to pass meaningful legislation that positively impacts all Tennesseans.”
