Of legislation that passed
If you look at the legislation we passed this year in Nashville, 164 new laws raised more revenue for the state or local governments. That's 164 bills we passed that took more of your money and gave it to the government. Now, compare that to only 29 bills that passed that actually decreased government revenue - that returned your money back to you. Or let's look at another telling statistic. Of the 611 new pieces of legislation we passed, 417 increased government spending and only 67 actually cut government spending.
