Posted at 9:23 AM, Oct 07, 2019

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee House of Representatives has a new leader. He is Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton from Crossville. The Republican leader was elected to his post just a few weeks ago replacing Representative Glen Casada of Williamson County who resigned from leadership amidst numerous scandals. Speaker Sexton is my guest on INSIDE POLITICS this week. Tune us in as we discuss how he is seeking to renew public faith and confidence in lawmakers and trust among themselves. And we will ask him about the Metro immigration executive order controversy and what he hopes and expects new Mayor Cooper to do about it. We will also talk about the state’s proposal to change the TennCare health care program into a first in the nation federal block grant program, along with what appear to be new efforts to remove or add context to the controversial Nathan Bedford Forrest bust at the State Capitol. And what’s happened to the alleged FBI probe of the controversial school voucher law that passed the House by one vote last spring under unusual circumstances?
