NASHVILLE – As the General Assembly began the new 2021 legislative session on Tuesday, State Senator Ken Yager (R-Kingston) encourages local citizens to contact him regarding issues of importance to them.  Yager represents Campbell, Fentress, Morgan, Rhea, Roane, Pickett and Scott Counties in District 12 in the Tennessee Senate.

“We have a lot of important issues on our agenda this year beginning with a special session on education,” said Senator Yager.  “I invite all local citizens to call, email or write me regarding their concerns on the issues we face in Tennessee.”

Yager plans to implement an online survey in early February to gauge constituent views on key issues that will come before lawmakers in 2021.  He has repeatedly utilized constituent surveys during his legislative tenure which helps guide his decisions on important votes.  More details regarding the survey will be posted soon.

“I want as much input as possible from the people I represent regarding legislation before us this year.  I also stand ready to help citizens navigate state government services, whether it is unemployment benefits, TennCare, or other state services.”
