Senate Republicans
Senate Republicans on Monday picked a longtime Williamson County lawmaker to serve as majority leader. Sen. Jack Johnson, R-Franklin, has been in the Tennessee Senate since 2006. Lt. Gov. Randy McNally will remain in his position, when the 111th General Assembly convenes next month. Johnson's election is a rejection of any concerns about having so many lawmakers from the wealthy Williamson County. State Senator Steve Southerland (R-Morristown) was re-elected to the Joint Fiscal Review Committee, which serves as the state’s “watchdog” on all state budgetary matters. The General Assembly is scheduled to open the 2019 organization session on January 8.
