Guest:

State Senator Jeff Yarbro (D) - District 21, Nashville

After the Tennessee legislative session concluded, I sat down with Sen. Yarbro to discuss some of the biggest policy issues in Tennessee. We discussed sanctuary cities, the opioid epidemic, Medicaid expansion, transit, short-term rentals, sexual harassment legislation, and more.

Sample Questions:  
- Is there any hope of reviving Medicaid expansion in the next session, or was our best and last shot under Governor Haslem?
- After Tuesday's referendum result, where do you think Nashville goes from here on transit and how surprised were you by the loss and by the 28% margin?
 
Best Quotes from the show:
"There is a reason 'Profiles in Courage' is a relatively short book." - Sen. Yarbro
 
"Of the 118 legislative races [in Tennessee] this November, there will be Democratic candidates in 112 of them." - Sen. Yarbro
