During his time serving in our General Assembly, Chairman Faison has been a champion for small business and the agricultural industry, a fierce defender of our Second Amendment rights, and a steadfast advocate for our unborn children. He is also an avid outdoorsman and is currently a member of the Tennessee Sportsman’s Caucus.
